October is finally here! It’s taken 10 months but the chilling season of spooks and scares has arrived at last! This is a season that needs a proper welcome, and we’ve got just the thing: a Spooky-Silly Poetry Contest!

Yup, there’s nothing out there that gets you ready for scares than penning a good ol’ fashioned poem about your favorite scary game, and we all would love to see yours! Here’s the score:

Starting today (Oct. 1), you have the entire month to write some lighthearted prose or poetry about any horror game you can think of and submit it to our email: wegameunited@gmail.com.

There are just two guidelines to follow:

– No offensive language (It’s supposed to be lighthearted after all) – No more than 300 words long (quick, punchy, and fun!)

At the end of the month the winners will be picked by popular vote. The poem(s) that get the most votes will be crowned the Spooky Champion of Silly Poems! (Now that’s something that would make any resume look good!)

It’s finally October everyone, let’s start it off right!

I’m not so sure…
