CICADA and WRITE THE WORLD Joint Competition: Monster Flash Fiction From the Dementors to the Dark Riders, Sasquatch to Cyclops, Frankenstein to Loch Ness, monsters have long occupied our storytelling traditions and haunted our imaginations. But what makes these mythical beasts so monstrously fascinating? Is it their otherworldly origins? Our innate fear of the unknown? Or the age-old good vs. evil theme they represent? This month, Write the World and CICADA invite you to submit a piece of monster-themed flash fiction to our joint competition. Whether you write about fabled mountain creatures roaming snow-capped peaks, real-life monsters of the deep, a sympathetic monster hero, or metaphorical monsters of modern day, give us a new monster tale for our time—one that will endure for years to come. Come celebrate the art of tiny tales with us, dear writers, in monster form! The contest opens officially on February 12—in the meantime, visit this page for more information about prizes and dates! Our partner for this competition, Write the World, is dedicated to improving the writing of high school students through a global online community and guided interactive process. They're a fantastic resource for teen writers. Pay them a visit!
