On Saturday, I found the most perfect award statues for the ‘horror slam’ the Australian Horror Writers’ Association is running at Conflux.
From the announcement at Sinister Reads: “The Australian Horror Writers Association is hosting an open mic short story competition at Conflux 2014. The comp will be held at 7pm on Friday 3 October following the opening ceremony.
We’re looking for horror stories up to 500 words or a maximum of two minutes in length. Entry is by gold coin and all funds raised will go to the AHWA.
Winners will be chosen by Kaaron Warren, Rob Hood and the discerning audience.”
So yep, the horrifying Rob Hood and I will be judging this competition. We want nasty, horrible, creepy, disturbing. Some great prizes, and here’s a sneak peek at the statues I found:
Nasty! So come along on the Friday night with your flash fiction. We wanna hear as many as possible!
