SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED.
Selected stories are now featured in our reading lists.
Welcome to Mystery's December engagement project!
Now that we're closing in to the end of the year, your task is to help us find the best mysteries and thrillers of 2018. Selected stories will be recommended to our readers and featured in a brand new reading list!
We are searching for stories that fall under any ONE of the following themes. For instance, theme #1 requires mystery stories with a crime involved. So if you've written a caper mystery or have read a good caper mystery on Wattpad, let us know in the comment section below!
Mysteries/thrillers that involve crime, such as swindles or theft, done by the main characters in full view of the reader.
Mysteries/thrillers that have a secondary genre in fanfiction, be it real-person fiction or borrowing worlds and characters from other fiction.
Mysteries/thrillers that focus on the psychological states of its characters, often with elements of drama, action and paranoia.
Mysteries/thrillers that are set in the future, another universe or even a galaxy far, far away, often with elements of technology, speculation or time-travel.
Mysteries/thrillers that go beyond our realm, often with elements of magic, mythical creatures or anything out of this world.
