$500 Halloween 50 Horror Word Story Contest 2019 – Free Entry

The 2019 $500 Halloween Horror 50 Word Story Contest is here. Every year Every Writer runs contests. This one is one of their favorites.

First they will be doing a print issue! They will be doing 2 print issues, and will pick entries from this contest to be in their issue. If you had a 50 word story designated to be in their print issue, from a past contest, please contact them.

Second, they will be giving out a $500 reward for the best 50 word horror story. They believe writers should get paid for their work and wish they could pay all of their writers, but it’s just impossible. So $500 for 50 words, is a unique and valuable statement to their readers. Ten dollars a word is what all writers really deserve.

So here are the rules:

• Story must be scary
• Story must be 50 words
• Story must be original and your own
• Story may not be published elsewhere
• Story must have a title (does NOT count in word count)
Deadline is October 25, 2019
• Enter as many times as you want
• Story must be written in the comments below!
• Be nice or be disqualified

Owner operator of Every Writer, Richard Edwards says, “This is one of favorite traditions of Every Writer. I look forward to this every year, and this year I have extended the time we are going to spend with the contest.”

The winners will:

• Be announced on October 31, 2019
• Will get $500
• Will be published in our digital and print issue.
• Will get an author page on our site

There is no entry fee for this contest. It would help Every Writer greatly if you would donate 1$ or more, if you can.

If you want to keep up with Richard on Twitter, you can follow him at @everywriter. He follows back all writers.

Good luck, and let the writing begin.
