Where in the World is Project REUTSway?

Usually around this time of year the team at REUTS would be hard at work promoting the 3rd annual Project REUTSway short story competition. So why have we been tight-lipped and silent about it, especially with November just around the corner? While we are hard at work, we have been intentionally keeping things under-wraps. When PRW […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Wisdom and War by Kathleen Palm

Rage rolls like waves from the mortal world into mine. The battle calls. I answer. Born of the dark chaos of the beginning of everything, it is my purpose. The realm of faerie stretches out around me. The wispy black of my dress shifts at my feet. Sadness weaves through my mind at the thought […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: That Which Came Before by Drew Hayes

The grinding of ancient gears sounded like the rumble of a giant’s bones. It filled the cavern where Setna waited, breath held in excitement tinged with fear as he watched the gate slowly open before him. He didn’t fear what might lie beyond this gleaming metal door; his only worry was at what may not […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Steal Her Heart by Felicia Anderson

“Dude, close your mouth. You’re drooling.” “I am not.” I shoved my brother, Ata, with one arm. I returned my eyes to Kesi, the most beautiful woman in all of Kair. Clothed in a crimson leather dress, I studied that neckline many times, as it dipped between her wondrous curves. Her bare collar bone and […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: St. Andrei by Sam Hardy

Romania is bloody cold. That’s the misconception some people I’ve spoken to have about vampires; we are dead, therefore we cannot feel anything, not even cold. And it’s true in a way, we don’t get cold in the same way that humans do, which is what they usually mean. But when you turn into a […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Scream by Sam Hardy

Nobody knows why she screams. A haunted, wailing sound better found in ghost stories.  Nobody knows what keeps her up at night, crouched low to the ground and hidden by shadows. Wild, red hair frames her petite, round face, covers half-crazed eyes and becomes tangled between her lips, muting her whispers of nonsense. It is […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: The Red Slipper by Megan Wilson

The sun was warm on her back as Rhodopis walked along the river, her sandals skimming over the harbour’s metal platform. She felt free, the wind blowing her golden hair about her face and brushing her bare arms. As she reached the end of a jetty, she heard someone call out from the watch tower. […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Rebirth by Kathleen Palm

Torches blaze to life as I step into warm white sand, my legs shaking with fatigue. My chest sighs with every labored breath. Ragged remnants of a tattered dress hang at my knees. I sweep tangled hair from my face. How did I get here? Where is here? I glance behind me into the deepest […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Princess of Foxes by Alexandra Perchanidou

“Father, father!” the boy shouted as he ran towards the lake. He and his family had been traveling towards Kyoto for the yearly festival for three days. The boy loved the trip. Despite the fear for thieves, the roads were safe and many others had also joined the caravan of carts and horses. He found […]

PRW Runner-up Tour: Not Just Any Girl by Jennifer McCoy

Violent waves swirled and crashed upon the jagged rocks. I flailed my arms and legs, desperate to grab hold of something and pull my head above the surface of the water. A wave crashed over my head and pushed me into another rock. I let out a garbled scream at the painful sting that scratched […]
