“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” – Aldous Huxley

Doors are portals to new places and new possibilities. The can lead you home or to exciting discoveries. Then can be open and easily accessible or closed, blocking out all hope of moving forward. They can trap you or set you free. Where will the doors in your story lead?

This month, your challenge is to write a story with a door, or multiple doors in it. They can be open or closed, locked or unlocked, hidden or blatantly obvious, but they must be a major part of your story. (No fan fiction please.) Once again, we are opening the contest to both prose and poetry.


1. This can be prose or a poem.
2. A door or doors must be a core element in your piece.
4. Prose must be 500-1500 words long.
5. Poetry must be 100-500 words long.
6. You will be disqualified if you exceed the limits.

The contest will close on the November 30th 2013 and voting will begin December 1st.

Please post your entry here. All members are eligible to join. If you are not a member you can join here. Sign up is free and all are welcome! :)

The winner will have their writing displayed on the main Fantasy-Faction website in January 2014.

Good Luck and Happy Writing! :)
