I had a go myself way back when and it was fun. With fantasy you are creating a new world and anything goes as long as there is a plot.

Long tendrils of foul smelling saliva slowly dripped and dribbled from the jaws of Sargron, the leader of the Dog-Head hunting pack. He towered above Mrs. Ratleigh, one four-fingered hand gripping her shoulder. Frightened, she looked up into his evil black eyes. 

“The old witch is already at our den and you will join her,” he growled. His long ears twitched as several of the hunting pack drew nearer, baying at his words. “Unless the femdrake is here by moonrise, your bones will litter the ground around the ashes of our fire by morning.”

     First prize is Free membership for a year for both first person and third         person entries (for existing members only).

  • All three winners will have their story posted at the top of the WWC website, and will be included in the end of year anthology for 2021 (membership not required). 

  • Judges are the WWC members. But will not judge their own story. You will also receive free useful feedback on your submitted story (membership not required).
