This includes a Firewalk www.FirewalkExperience.co.uk on the second day, usually in the name of a charity. Watch the video above from the Firewalk, it’s CRAZY!
Join us at LIVE at 11pm for a very special one off, bedtime ghost story. You can watch here or on the Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/Twisted50Book. But don’t watch alone… you may not sleep all night and you know you must, or Santa won’t be calling. Then again, maybe you don’t want Santa calling?
‘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
Judging by the title of this piece, you would be forgiven if you thought I was referring to this Judge Dredd. Anyone who has seen the movies (2012 being my preference because I love the concept of a contained dystopian story inside a tower block, and a psycho female drug baron as the antagonist) will
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

I just found out that Richie Brown, one of our writers from Create50, has sadly died. Richie was a prolific writer for Create50 and a huge supporter, both publically, and behind the scenes. A handful of writers really committed to elevating the whole Twisted50 experience for everyone, and Richie was one of them. During the
Writing is something that I have been doing pretty much from age 15. I write horror because darkness is addictive, I still remember checking for monsters under my bed as a child and seeing shadows where there were none. I have written many horror short stories, getting better all the time, until a good friend
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,
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.
