Thief is back, and we want you to scare us.
You have awoken. Your nightshirt is stuck to your back and your bed sheets are damp with sweat. Cold beads form on your forehead. The droplets inch across your temples passing your widened eyes, gathering at the nape of your neck. The dream has faded, but the fear remains. You know it wasn’t real, it couldn’t possibly be, but your heart beats otherwise….
What follows you in your nightmares?
We are looking for poetry, haiku and short fiction along the theme of Campfire Stories. Your work will explore the creepy, the freaky and the scary. If selected, your work will be seen around the world. Each successful piece will be complimented by a bespoke illustration from one of our favourite illustrators.
