  1. Shock Totem is devoted to horror and dark fantasy, which adds horror elements to fantasy.
    • Write a story or poem that mixes horror elements with another genre.
    • Take an abandoned or unfinished piece and rewrite/continue by adding horror elements.
  2. Shock Totem runs a one-hour story contest. Set your timer for one hour and try to write a complete story within that hour.
  3. Write a story or poem based on the latest addition to your music library.
  4. Start your own journal! It can be anything from a bi-annual print journal to a blog-style daily. Create your submission guidelines and submit your journal’s listing to Duotrope’s Digest. Post about your journal on our forums.
