Contests

DarkFuse hosts monthly contests and tournaments.  We have 3 active campaigns authors can take part in (open to the public):

#GoreWars

GoreWars is an online gross-out tournament hosted by DarkFuse.  Each tournament features 16 contestants (chosen through a call-out contest) whose only goal is to disgust our readers in 50 words or less. Each round is determined by our subscribers’ popular vote as well as votes from a panel of judges from our DarkFuse Readers Group (DRG).


#DFTinyTerrors

We challenge authors to scare us via Twitter with your writing in under 140 characters. Our DarkFuse Readers Group, staff and subscribers vote for the best micro-tale of each campaign!


#DarkFuseHaikus

DarkFuse has mutated the ancient art of Haiku and challenge authors to submit a poem via Twitter DarkFuse-style.  What’s the difference? Traditional haiku poems are 3 lines with 5-7-5 syllables.  DarkFuse haikus are 3 lines with 6-6-6 syllables, containing elements of horror.
