Attention all you up-and-coming horror writers! Our very first Life In A Kilt Podcast “Kilt of Horrors” is in need of your stories for our 2016 Halloween episode. Stories must feature a kilt (or kilts), be between 1500 – 2000 words long and “safe for work.” We’ll pick our favorite three stories and read them on our Halloween episode.
