May 1-7 we’ll accept stories for a flash fiction call dealing with ‘True Crime’. Since flash fiction isn’t the best medium for exploring real life events, we’re going to be flexible and ask that your story at least resembles a plausible crime. You’re more than welcome to dramatize a real life murder, or heinous crime, but we ask that you change the names of those involved. If you’re lost as to what we’re looking for, check out a couple episodes of the 1980s/90s series Unsolved Mysteries. The writers managed to create gripping recreations and often ventured into half-fiction to portray what may have occurred.
Sadie Hartmann aka “Mother Horror” will be choosing three winners for May’s call, but still send your submissions to Cemeterygatesmedia@gmail.com.
