Can you write a Christmas Ghost or Horror Story?

Deadline Dec 6th midnight GMT // 1,000 Words or fewer

'Twisted 50: The Ghosts of Christmas’ is a collection of winter spine tinglers, fifty stories of the paranormal, fifty writers… fifty slices of terror.

 

This special volume will be published on December 16th, just in time for that extra special gift this season…

 

Can you write a short Twisted tale in 1,000 words or less? The 50 best stories will be published in both paperback and online.


We all love a good Christmas ghost story or horror movie. If Hammer House of Horror, Tales of the Unexpected and Pans Books of Horror set your pulse racing and mind spinning as a youngster, then writing a short story, set at Christmas, offers the darkest recesses of your mind, a deliciously macabre feast in which to express itself.


You know you shouldn’t let it out, but you know you want to.  

 

Interested…? Let’s dig a little deeper into this paranormal, wicked and dank shallow grave…

Twisted's Evil Little Sister

 

‘Buckle up, she’s going to take you for a hell of a ride!’

 

Twisted's Evil Little Sister is the sibling volume for Twisted 50, a collection of 33 horror stories... the ones that we couldn’t include in Twisted50 because they were too demented, unhinged, deranged and frankly… evil.

 



Listen to excerpts below

The acoustic, the sense of 'being there' with a stranger whispering your deepest fears right into your ears, and a freak-out playlist of fantastic musical intros is nerve jangling…’

Create50 Lost One Of It’s Vibrant Voices: A Tribute to Richie Brown

I just found out that Richie Brown, one of our writers from Create50, has sadly died.

Richie was a prolific writer for Create50 and a huge supporter, both publically, and behind the scenes.

A handful of writers really committed to elevating the whole Twisted50 experience for everyone, and Richie was one of them. During the most important months of the project, Richie would email me almost daily with updates, data and information as he tracked in staggering detail, the success of the project. He would also dive into commenting online when commenting became negative.
