Now, I know many of you out there are weird*.
I don’t mean that in a bad way, because you’re like me – you’re drawn to reading and writing on subjects from the darker realms of your imagination and that’s great, right?
When you close your eyes or put pen to paper/ fingers to keyboard, you’re mind is not teeming with big-eyed Disneyfied, fluffy bunny fiction, spilling over with love and flowers and happy endings.
That’s not to say everyone your write is a sociopath with a taste for human flesh, but if your characters are good people who rescue small children and help old ladies cross the road, they are made that way so you can do horrible things to them.
Preferably with pits of magma.
And horned beasts.
Given that you are a fellow twisted soul who needs a creative outlet (and let’s face it, we’d all be very afraid if you didn’t have an outlet), you might be interested in this writing opportunity at The Wyrd magazine.
So if you’re an author or artist who has
a fondness for weird and slipstream themes
Pop along here. Closing date is the end of this month and good luck, siblings.
*Of course, if you’re genuinely weird, you’ll spell this WYRD
