  • New Contest: Haunted Houses

    Our hopes, fears, and regrets turn us all into haunted houses. Hungry what-ifs moan in our attics; restless could-have-beens wail in our basements; should-haves flicker the lights and slam the doors in all our hallways. In art or poetry, map out the haunted house of yourself and tell us about what’s lurking in your dark corners. Submissions due by midnight on September 20, 2017.

  • Below are our favorite submissions from the last contest "Twisted Fairy Tales". 

    Mission: Fairy tale villains have it rough—while the heroes get their happy endings, villains tend to meet pretty gruesome fates. CICADA wants to see this tired old trope turned upside-down. Show us a Not-So-Wicked Stepmother. Let the Big Bad Wolf get his dinner.
