We have decided to shift focus from short stories to the novella form, and this year we are looking novella entries of between 15 000 to 30 000 words. If you're not sure of what a novella is, go check out this link.
A winner and two runners-up will be picked, for possible publication in a collection. Further details to be announced on finalisation of the final selection.
What we're looking for:
The SA HorrorFest Bloody Parchment team is looking for novellas that fall under the horror and dark fantasy/SF genres. If it's dark, we're interested. While we're obviously looking for Africa's best, this competition is open to folks from further afield. If you have any questions, feel free to drop the editor, Nerine Dorman, an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES: OCTOBER 31, 2015
