Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

  1. Sounds fascinating, this may be a silly question but where can we read the stories that get written?? I love me some shapeshifter fiction to read! :)

    1. Some of the winners will be published in an anthology. The rest of the winners and honorable mentions will be highlighted on this blog after the competition. I imagine some of them might post on their blogs after the contest is over if they aren't published in the anthology.

      Basically the answer is... I will let you know when the anthology is out and you can purchase a copy. It is going to be a fantastic read!


    2. That would be awesome, thanks!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
