Den of Eek 2: a call for short story writers

We’re holding another storytelling event in September, and we want you to be part of it…

Did you hear the one about the escaped murderer with a hook for a hand? Or the story about disappearing hitchhiker? We’re planning our second annual Den of Eek! storytelling event, and this year, the theme is urban legends. Specifically, creepy urban legends.

Like last year, we’re opening up some spots for new talent. If you’re an up-and-coming writer and you can tell us a story that’ll make us check under our beds before going to sleep at night, we’ve got an opportunity for you…

On Wednesday 18 September, we’ll be bringing together the best storytellers we can find to give us their version of an urban legend in a central London venue. If you’d like to be one of them, here’s what you need to do: write a 500 word story on the theme of “urban legends” and email it to us at by 23 August.

We’ll pick our favourites, and invite the writers to come to the event to read their story. So you’ll need to be free on the evening of 18 September, be able to get to central London, and be willing to get up and read. We’ll help with travel expenses, and even buy you a drink afterwards!

More details on the event, including speakers and ticket availability, will be coming very soon. In the meantime, why not check out our e-book of short stories from last year’s Den of Eek? All proceeds go to our Geeks vs Cancer charity fund, so you’ll be helping a good cause by buying it.
