How to Win
 
Entries will be judged by a panel of members of Writers Unite! Entries will be judged by originality, creativity and the quality of writing. Several prompts will be provided; using a prompt will neither increase nor decrease the entrant’s chance of winning.
 
Prizes
All submissions may be read aloud at the Art Department’s Candy-a-Thon & Three Minute Horror Story Reading on the afternoon of Tuesday, Oct. 28th, approximately 3pm ; some may be included in the 2014/2015 Fall Line Literary Magazine. The top 3 entrants will receive a certificate; first place will receive a fabulous Halloween Care Package. 
 
Don’t know how to start?  Well, we’ve got some ideas. 
 
1. Write a story in which the narrator realizes he or she is being controlled by an outside force.2. Think of something that frightened you as a child, and write a horror story incorporating that fear.

3. You are invited to a swanky party full of boring people.  To amuse yourself, you ask people, “Do you know what it’s like to kill someone?” Then, someone says, “Yes.”

4. You come to the realization that your best friend or lover has murdered someone.  How did you figure it out?
