My fellow AmeriKrakens, it is with a heavy heart that my brethren and I bid you glad tidings from our isolated locations. The country is victim to the times and we are all affected. So from our isolation to yours, we hope that you are safe, well, and handling the current events like the bosses we know you are.
It pains us that we have lost the ability to see you all and entertain you at the conventions this year. However, we are hopeful that things will clear up by August so we’ll keep our tentacles crossed.
Until that time, we all need to do our best to keep clear-headed, keep busy, keep morale boosted, and keep boredom controlled.
So to help with all these and to stick to our company goal of less boredom and more fun how ever we can, it’s time for a Mrs Kraken Contest. We know there are some great minds among you, so let’s put them to work. We’d like to see an original short story from you. You can send it to us through Facebook Messenger or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winner will be chosen by our panel of experts, name forever etched on our social media, and earn themselves a sweet prize of $100 cash dollars. How’s that for interesting? There are some rules involved and a little bit of legalese.
—>This must be an original story, unpublished anywhere else.
—>Submission should be approximately 3 to 5 typed pages (a little overflow is allowed)
—>We are prone to the horror genre, but any and all genres are acceptable. Writing horror will not necessarily help you. Writing non-horror will not necessarily hurt you. Best submission wins, period.
—>The author(s) shall retain ownership of any work they submit. Mrs Kraken Presents does not claim ownership of anyone’s work and will not use, reuse, copy, replicate, or distribute any submission outside of our member’s review without written consent of the author(s). All submissions will be disposed of upon completion of the contest.
—>By submitting your work to Mrs Kraken Presents you give us and our representatives permission to use your name in future posts or promotions as a winner of said contest. Pretty much, we’re going plug your writing prowess for a post or two.
—>Members of Mrs Kraken Presents are prohibited from receiving any prize of any contest ran by Mrs Kraken Presents.
I think that’s it. So come on, put your thinking caps on, put some of your free time to good use, and let’s get some morale flowing! Good luck, my friends!
