Mermaids vs Ghosts… and the winner is YOU

Vampires vs. Werewolves is old hat. And zombies? Gross. What about the under-represented supernatural creatures?  Where do they fall in the world of WWFC (Wacky Wrestling Fantasy Creatures)?

Right here:


In a paranormal fight of epic proportion, Tera Lynn Childs (Forgive My Fins) and Rosemary Clement-Moore (The Splendor Falls) are hosting a throwdown between two of the fantasy world’s most elusive creatures: GHOSTS and MERMAIDS.

Now it’s time for you to choose sides in the battle, and reap the rewards. Your challenge is thus:

Write a 500 word essay declaring whether you will align with ghosts or mermaids and why. You can debate the relative merits of either creature (mermaids are corporeal but ghosts can move through walls) or explain how you think the battle will go down or just flat out say why you prefer one over the other. You can even write a flash fiction piece that makes your preference crystal clear.

To submit your essay for consideration, either email your entry to one of the hosts (tlc@teralynnchilds.com or rosemary@readrosemary.com) or Twitter reply them (@teralynnchilds or @rclementmoore) with the #ghostsvsmermaids hashtag with a link to where you have it posted.

Ah, but what about the rewards? The hosts will choose three winners from each side (making six winners in all) to win a signed book and swag pack.

Deadline: September 1, 2010

Let the battle begin!

  1. *clapping with glee* I'm working on my argument now! My biggest problem is that my flash fiction is more like 650 words than 500 words. *pulling out editing scissors*
