Writing Prompt: Mish-Mash

this way

I’ve been watching a lot of Supernatural lately so the term “mish-mash” holds a different connotation for me. But for our purposes today, mish-mash will refer to mixing two different genres together to form one awesome genre!

So here is your mission [INSERT MISSION IMPOSSIBLE THEME HERE]: Take a genre from Group A and a genre from Group B and mash them together in a piece of flash fiction. Since I love a good juxtaposition, today’s writing prompt is also a contest. The winner will receive a personalized, hand-sewn writing buddy and other awesome writing goodies. The writing buddies come in various sizes and can be either picked from this selection or made to different specifications (“I want a unicorn!”)


Historical Romance
Children’s Fantasy
Mythic Fiction

Dark Humor
Fabulist Horror
Conspiracy Thriller
Heist and Caper
Urban Fantasy

Now for the technical stuff:

Submission Guidelines
Submission should include: your name, short bio (150 words or less), e-mail address, word count, and pseudonym (if writing under one)
Story should be around 1000 words or less
Send the story (in the body of the e-mail) to: or post the story on your blog and link us back to it.

Will Be Judged On
