In their latest writing contest, Dictionary.com spotlights some haunting prose
We love Dictionary.com for the vast store of ways they keep expanding our vocabulary (check out and subscribe to their Word of the Day email)—and for their writing contests that test wordsmith craftiness. Recently for their latest Haunting Hooks writing contest, the site challenged contestants to write a frightful (in the best sense) opening to a sci-fi story using fifty words or less. Check out the three finalists and vote for your favorite here. Voting ends on October 24, and the winner will be announced Thursday, October 27.
