Twisted Tournoi will be a monthly(ish) competition for gritty short stories of between 500 and 1500 words.
The story must comply with the Twisted Tales group rules, beyond those rules you are free to write what you want: there is no prompt.
For current competition details check the forums.
Our fortnightly Star Twisters writing challenge is still going strong: each challenge asks for stories of 350 words (or less) based on some form of prompt. The winning entries go into a grand monthly final and we choose a winner.
We at Twisted Tales would like to create as meritocratic, encouraging, and supportive environment as possible for all budding writers. Twisted Tales is the place on Red Bubble for short stories of no more than 1500 words, with a definite twist in the tail. Any genre welcome, all we ask is the writing constitutes a story and surprises us with a twist.
So get writing, participate, read, support and most of all get twisted! And remember this group is all about QUALITY rather than quantity. Only submit your very best stories to us, not everything you write.
If you need more help on understand a twist, here is some useful guidance on twist endings
