  • 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.

    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.

    1. 1. How do you name your pets?

      • Terrible puns I’ll be embarrassed to tell the vet later
      • I'm slowly working my way through every Lord of the Rings character
      • Good, solid, old-fashioned names—none of that newfangled nonsense here
      • All dogs are Dog; all cats are Cat; all saltwater crocodiles are Saltwater Crocodile
      • My pet came with a name—an ancient name, the name it’s borne since the sun was new, a name in the tongue of the Old Gods
