Troll Bacon

Short Story Quest

Troll Bacon

Host: Dominic de Souza

Think about fantasy worlds in new and unique ways - with a surprising twist ending! The best stories will feature a fantasy element, and be set in the real world. Stories can be thrillers, romance, whimsy, cautionary tales, or many more.

They must all have an element of fun and humor, either through the idea, or the way the characters respond to situations.

Your short story submission should be between 1000 to 5,000 words. 1 story per quest.

No fan fiction. Your creative world must be original - but it can be similar to your favorite series.

All stories are reviewed with our handy Story Checklist.

Contestant participants:

Finalists

The top 10 stories will be published in a special, print-on-demand LegendFiction journal that you can share with friends and fans!

How judging works

CatholicAuthor staff will review every entry as it comes in. After the deadline, Citlalin will suggest top 10 best for us to consider for publication in a print-on-demand journal. If we don't have enough entries, or the entries don't fit the quality we're looking for, we will extend the deadline. This number may change - depending on the quantity and quality of entries!

Welcome to the 'Troll Bacon' Quest!

I'm Dominic, founder of CatholicAuthor and LegendFiction. I love imaginative, creative stories that share a surprising truth, or help us see reality in a wacky new way. Some of my favorite novels, movies, and sources, include Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, The Witcher, Star Wars, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jordan Peterson, our Holy Father Pope Francis, and more.


Do you like creative, crazy, and downright rib-ticklin' short stories? The top 10 submissions get featured right here in LegendFiction.  

What is 'troll bacon?' It's a prompt to get you to think about fantasy worlds in new and unique ways. Think about hinting at a larger world beyond our eyesight. Imagine Canadian trolls tearing up maple trees like sugar cane. Imagine a secret war to harvest troll bacon happening under our very noses. 

The best stories will feature a fantasy element, and be set in the real world. Stories can be thrillers, romance, whimsy, cautionary tales, or many more. They must all have an element of fun and humor, either through the idea, or the way the characters respond to situations.
