WHAT IS 13 DAYS 13 SHORTS
13 Days 13 Shorts is a free and fun festival where the last thirteen days of October each get a theme and people make stuff inspired by those themes! Stuff like short stories, poems, paintings, sketches, songs, and so on!
Everyone is invited to participate. The submissions will all go on this site and by October 31st we will have a full gallery haunted by the Halloween spirit.
There's no cost, no obligation, and you maintain ownership over your own art. We're just here to have a place to showcase your amazing work.
Sign up for this year's themes below!
We are no longer using social media to 💀 promote the festival! 💀
✨So instead join our newsletter!!!✨
Because social media sites are being incredibly chaotic these days (and not in the fun way) we are moving over to an email newsletter system to keep everyone up to date on 13 Days 13 Shorts goodness!
If you sign up below, you will receive the following (and ONLY the following) newsletters:
our themes announcement [which has already gone out]
a daily email for all thirteen days of the festival announcing the theme and highlighting pieces
a closing email thanking everyone for their support and submissions
If you do sign up you will not have your information shared with third party services. It is strictly for 13 Days 13 Shorts to tell you about all the great goodies we are showcasing this year. Signing up is easy and you can opt out any time!
To join the newsletter simply enter your name and email in the next section and click the little box for the newsletter!
[for some reason this doesn't work on mobile so you will have to use a computer to click the little box sorry!]
