Brevity is a virtue in our first annual Lovecraftian Micro Fiction Contest

We are extremely pleased to announce our first Lovecraftian Micro Fiction Contest!

Lovecraft himself wrote some extremely short fiction. "Memory," "What the Moon Brings," and "Ex Oblivione" are examples. Micro Fiction is a fun way to explore a genre or topic in a challenging way.

Can you write a complete story in this limited amount of space? By complete story, we mean a character, situation, beginning, middle, and end. Not a vignette, not a character study, but a story. Yes? Then enter our first annual Lovecraftian Micro Fiction Contest! Click here for full details.

The top 10 stories will be published in a chapbook. The winning authors will receive 2 complimentary copies of the chapbook. The overall winner will be read aloud at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon by one of our celebrity guest authors (TBD) and also have their story published in the Daily Lurker, our 1930s-style newspaper program that also contains interesting articles, comics, film summaries, guest bios, and fiction. The top winner will also receive their very own copy of the Daily Lurker.
