Mutant 750: Winners of #38 & Prompts for #39

June 21, 2015

What a delightfully creepy and entertaining week it was here at Grammar Ghoul Press! Thanks so much to all of our talented writers, and to everyone who took the time to read and vote!

First, I’d like to wish all the dads out there a very happy Father’s Day! I hope you were all spoiled rotten today.

I would also like to take a moment to thank my wonderful ghoul helpers, Susan, Jen, and Tony. These three ghouls are some of the most wonderful people I know! I honestly don’t know what I’d do without them.

Before we get to our Mutant 750 #38 winners, a reminder to check out all the submissions for the Shapeshifting 13 #6, and then vote for your three (3) favourites. Voting is open until Monday at 8pm ET.

Finally, don’t forget to check out the ghouls on Twitter and Facebook, or sign up for our mailing list.

Mutant 750 #38 Challenge Winners

1st: EA Wicklund, with The Friend. This story makes such creative use of the prompts, and is wonderfully constructed to boot. Congratulations, EA! Don’t forget to grab your Mutant 750 winner’s badge from the sidebar.


2nd: Thomas Shaw, with his well-crafted and deliciously creepy piece, Cut and Paste.


3rd: Daydreams by Dolly, with Midnight Rendezvous, which offers another unique take on the prompts.

Congratulations to all our winners!

Prompts for Mutant 750 #39

You will find both of your prompts below. Your visual prompt is the short film, Carrot Crazy, by Logan Scelina. Remember, you must use both prompts in your submission. And you must use the definition of the word prompt that’s provided below (but you can conjugate the verb to suit the tense your piece is written in). You must also make some sort of reference to the visual prompt. It can be subtle, obvious, or anything in between. Good luck!

Word Prompt:

Rinse (verb)

Wash (something) with clean water to remove soap, detergent, dirt, or impurities.
