Have Yourself a Spooky Little Christmas

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas…. well, maybe the month before. The LSF team had just finished work on Santa’s Bedtime Book of Adventure Stories and Santa was busy reading them nightly for all the little girls and boys. All was right with the world and all we had to do now was to relax and

Rejection and Redemption by Michael van Koetsveld

I have written literally hundreds of short pieces, to a one-day deadline, to a prompt. The prospect of getting a story done in ten days held no horrors for me.  At the beginning of lock down I joined a group of writers who did the daily tasks for 70 days in a row, completing over

Impossible Deadlines Are My New Best Friend by Rose Banks

Time was never my friend. Any kind of deadline… it usually didn’t end well. Four, five month deadlines for anthologies and I crashed and burned. But there would be no dishonour in failing to meet a 10 day deadline. Because that’s obviously impossible, anyhow, right? So I opened up TextEdit—because unlike Word that meant I

Twisted50 Lost One Of It’s Vibrant Voices: A Tribute to Richie Brown

A handful of writers really committed to elevating the whole Twisted50 experience for everyone, and Richie was one of them. During the

Lamppost hugging for beginners by Christopher Stanley

2018 seems a long time ago now, but I remember it ended on a high. Sure I’d seen the pictures of the red carpet events put on by Create50 but I never thought I’d attend one. Then I saw my name on the shortlist for The Singularity. Then I found out that my story, Hive Mind,

From Twisted to Creepy in 12 months! by Mark Walker

It seems fitting, writing this post, that my FACEBOOK notifications should have spit out a year-old post reminding me that it has been just under 12 months since the TWISTED50 launch party and awards ceremony at the Cinema Museum in London. The reminder was for a change of profile cover picture to the Twisted50 Vol 2 Logo to celebrate winning a
