Ye Olde Lovecraftian Pyrate Contest

I’m sorry, but Disney’s Davy Jones is no Cthulhu.

As you know, I am a fan of Lovecraft and pirates, so here’s what I propose…

The Contest!

Writers: Tell a short horror tale which incorporates pirates and Lovecraftian horror/the Cthulhu Mythos. The word count should be 1000 to 2500 words, and all entries submitted in rich text/Word format.

Artists: Create an illustration which incorporates pirates and Lovecraftian horror. Please send submissions as either lo-res gifs or jpegs. I may ask for a hi-res image at some point in the future.

All entries must be sent to dwightmacpherson at gmail dot com no later than midnight (EST) on JULY THIRTIETH.

The Booty!

One writer and one artist (selected by a team of shoggoth judges, Blackbeard’s cursed zombie and yours truly) will win an autographed copy of the DEAD MEN: DECIMATION original graphic novel, the highly-anticipated sequel to DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES.

So get writing and drawing, mateys–and good luck!

Oh, and most importantly…

HAVE FUN WITH IT!
