This month too we are poised and ready to kick off our monthly writing challenge again: The Edge of The Page.

We can’t wait to share with all our readers the stories that we received over the month of September and that followed the Halloween theme, but in the meantime we’re here to let you all know what five (5) words have been chosen and that you will be able to use for the stories that will be published and gathered in our collection during the month of November.

This time too you will be able to challenge your passion, your abilities, and your ideas by sending us a story that will be read and assessed by our team.

These are still the rules:

In the following paragraphs, you’ll find the five (5) words that have been chosen at random and that you will be able to use – all of them or even just one – as a source of inspiration for your work.

Once you’ve finished writing your story, you can send it to our team through the form you can find right below.

Participation requirements:

  1. The story can’t exceed 3500 words.
  2. The events of the story and the characters used must be completely original, hence not inspired by already known and existing stories.
  3. Fanfiction is, therefore, not allowed.
  4. The author retains all the rights of the material they send and will be able to use it again in the future.

The four best stories that we will receive this month and that will be published together with the ones gathered in our browsable magazine in the month of November will have to contain or be inspired by one or more of these five (5) words:

  1. Autumn
  2. Train
  3. Grandfather
  4. Harvest
  5. Bonfire

You can already take part in the competition right now by submitting the stories that will be published next month by the 30th of October.

This month, no specific genre is required for the content of the stories, you are completely free to decide what you want us and all the readers of Vampire’s Tears to read.

We can’t wait to dive into the fruits of your wonderful creativity!

Happy writing, everyone.
