Rule 1: Submissions to the competition must be posted on the Craigslist Writer’s Forum on October 31st.
Rule 2: Submissions must be posted under the title “A Charlie Taylor Halloween”.
Rule 3: All short stories must be based on the Gospel’s version of Jesus walking on water.
Why this miracle at Halloween? Because according to the Gospel, the disciples, who were on a boat “were greatly afraid”, and information left to us by Christianity’s most cherished scribes lacks essential details relating to what was seen that dark and stormy night upon the Sea of Galilee.
Was it the Lord’s intention to frighten the poor fishermen to death, or was he just trick-or-treating?
The writer receiving the most points wins. A $10 CASH PRIZE will be sent as a ten dollar bill through the United States Post Office on November 1st.
The three best stories will be published above the offical rules of this contest.
