CryptTV is the internet’s #1 platform for short horror/sci-fi/dark fantasy videos. Co-founded by Eli Roth, it creates original genre content guided by its motto #WeirdIsGood. This morning, Deadline announced that CrptTV will be teaming up with literary site Inkshares to identify the next great up-and-coming horror writers. Winners will have an opportunity to see their work developed and distributed.
As part of this initiative, CryptTV will be running a contest through Inkshares to identify new horror genre talent. Ordinarily, books submitted through Inkshares are published only after reaching 750 pre-orders. However, the top three horror projects on Inkshares, as determined by unique reader counts by October 31st, will be published even if they haven’t hit one of those pre-order goals. Of the three, CryptTV will choose at least one for its collection, which will then receieve CryptTV branding and promotion. Winners will be announced by CryptTV and Inkshares on Friday, November 4th.
The article also quotes CryptTV co-founder and CEO Jack Davis:
“CryptTV prides itself on bringing original, short form scares to the horror community and we are so excited to partner with Inkshares to give the fans a voice and platform to bring the next great horror story to life. Inkshares facilitates an incredible opportunity for fans and writers alike and I can’t wait to see the response from our horror loving community.”
We’ll keep you posted on submission guidelines as details are released.
