When you’re building a world, you need to know everything about your world. What’s happening down the block? What’s happening across the ocean? What’s happening on the other side of the globe?
And what happened there 100 years ago?
Pandemonium features alternating chapters: half of them describe Lena’s past in the Wild, in the days after she fled her hometown of Portland, Maine. The other half follow her through the present day, as she rebuilds a life in society. Inspired by Pandemonium‘s then/now structure, we want you to write a past or future companion scene to an existing story of yours in 200 words or fewer.
You have until 11:59 p.m. EST on March 20 to post your companion piece and tag it “pandeflash.” Four of our favorite stories will be featured on the homepage alongside Pandemonium, so get writing now! Make sure to include a link to your full story in the description of your companion piece so people can read both your stories together!
