I am looking for fictional mothman stories. The setting is not limited to West Virginia or any other regional area known as mothman territory.
Think of a story or angle you are sure no other writer will come up with and pursue it.
I want tales that grab me early…and hold me to the end. I want stories that are stories: Character + Want + Obstacle + Action = Resolution. I want story arc. I want character arc. I want powerful and emotional tales that are creepy, chilling, disturbing, and moody.
Although stories will mainly target an adult/young adult audience, I DO NOT want stories containing language or content unsuitable for children.
Formatting your manuscript:
Use Times New Roman (12pt).
Italicize what you want italicized.
Single space after sentence-ending punctuation.
Be sure to include your name, address, and email on the manuscript. If this information is not on the manuscript, I will reject it without reading.
