Saveas Writers’ International Writing Competition 2018





Nightmare: Gothic Dreams




To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, poems and stories are invited in the Gothic tradition.



What does Gothic mean to you? Dark? Spooky? Vampires and ruined monasteries or perhaps something more subtle and uncanny? Maybe Southern Gothic, as in Faulkner or Anne Rice’s work for example, or Canadian Gothic is your thing. It’s up to you and your Gothic imagination.



Get writing – and chill us to the bone!
