On episode 3 of the podcast, I talked with Eric S. Brown about holding some sort of contest. Amazing author David Dunwoody has joined in the fun! So now I present to you the Eric S. Brown and David Dunwoody Zombie Flash Fiction Contest.
Here’s what you gotta do:
We want a zombie story from you. It has to be completely original, and be no longer than 500 words. Here’s a good article to help get you familiarized with flash fiction if you’re new to it.
Type it up, put it into the body of an email message (along with your name), and send it to: corey AT midnightcorey DOT com. Please put “Zombie Flash Fiction Contest” in the subject line.
All the entries will be read by Eric S. Brown and David Dunwoody, and they will decide on the top three stories.
- First Place: Bigfoot War by Eric S. Brown; Empire (first edition, signed) by David Dunwoody
- Second Place: How the West Went to Hell (signed) by Eric S. Brown; UNBOUND & Other Tales (signed) by David Dunwoody
- Third Place: Kinberra Down (signed) by Eric S. Brown and Jessy Marie Roberts
The three winners will also be read on an upcoming episode of Midnight Corey’s podcast.
Your entries must be received by 11:59pm on July 4, 2010. Say happy birthday to America by writing a 500-word zombie gorefest!
The contest has officially begun, so start writing! Multiple submissions are allowed (in separate emails, please), but please limit to 3 entries per person.
A huge thank you goes out to Eric S. Brown and David Dunwoody for offering their books and judging expertise!
