It’s time for our first Campfire Story contest! I’ve been planning this for months and it’s really exciting to see it all come together. Because these contests are shiny and new, I’m opening submissions early to make sure you have time to give it your best! Make sure you’ve read the guidelines before diving in. Good luck!
Every month, I post a theme or prompt and your job is to write a story or create a piece of art revolving around that theme. All written and visual works are accepted, but only the top five submissions will be published.
