‘Newbie Writers and Rainstorm Press have teamed up to offer the ultimate newbie experience!

We want to read about your worst nightmare! With Halloween still lingering creepily behind us, what a great chance to come up a short scary story?! Take a dream you’ve had and turn it into a fictional horror story. One way to describe this contest is the idea that any experience can be turned into a story, so in this case, your worst nightmare can become your best story.  Send it to us!

The best ten entries will be published in a collection by Rainstorm Press, with a copy going to each winning entrant.

Out of the ten stories chosen, the top pick will not only be published in the collection but the author will receive the opportunity to submit a full length piece to have a novel published by Rainstorm Press. Final publication and publishing agreement will be at the discretion of Rainstorm Press.

This competition will run from the 10th of November 2011 to 10th of December 2011 with winners notified by email and posted up on www.newbiewriters.com on the 15th of December.

Entries need to be between 3000 and 10,000 words and submitted in standard word document format. Please ensure the story is in the body of the email and not a file attachment. File attachments will be disregarded. Also ensure your name, the title of the story and the competition name are in the title and body of your email. This allows for better tracking of submissions for us.

Entrants must be previously unpublished (articles in magazines are okay) as we want to appeal to all those new writers out there. This could be your chance to have something published!

All submissions need to be mailed to competition@newbiewriters.com

    You didn’t really say what the name of the contest is–“Your Worst Nightmare” maybe?

    We don’t know what the title is yet, we’re just gathering the stories and I hope the title of the collection will appear to us, perhaps in a nightmare.
