Send Your Narrative, Poetry, or Book Today!DEADLINE: Thursday, October 22nd, 2020
Its the witching hour, and the darkness is all of a sudden broken by a pale, sickly glow as the noise of perpetual tap … tap … tapping echoes through the night. Oh wait– thats simply a writer taking a late-night break and tweeting! As Halloween draws near, the social media sorcerers at Writers Relief have wondered: What if long-dead authors could send us tweets from the tomb? Heres what we envision our preferred authors would connect from the beyond to tweet about today! (face-with-tears-of-joy emoji).
