What they want:
Do you know superheroes?
Think you can write a superhero short story?
This needs to be a different kind of superhero story. Your superhero needs to be a different kind of hero, a hero who has some kind of disability. It could be a physical disability, a learning disability or sensory disability. That choice is left up to you, the writer.
Your target audience is any age group of reader, but they are probably into The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Battlestar Galactica. They probably listen to The Clash, Nirvana and Turin Brakes. And they probably read David Eddings’s Belgariad omnibus, Terry Brooks’s Shannara trilogy, Guy Gavriel Kay’s Fionavar trilogy and Raymond Carver’s short stories.
Your superhero’s name must include at least one of the following letters X, y or z.
