TRIGGERED

This was originally intended be an invite-only experiment, but I figured I’ll throw it open for anybody who might want to get involved. Let me know and I’ll add you to the group.

Triggers. Everybody has them. Some traumatic life event. A phobia. Something brought on by anxiety. Fear. Loneliness. Desperation. Desire. Rage.
It’s how we react to them, that shapes us.
Will they break us, leave us curled up and lost, helpless and hopeless? Or will they be the catalyst in making us snap? Triggered to run riot and rampage?
Everybody has triggers. Anything can set them off.
I want stories of triggers, of the reasons behind them, what triggers folks, folks who have been triggered, how they react. And the consequences when events, situations, overheard words or misconstrued actions kick off a chain reaction where anything can happen.

TRIGGERED


This is a WetWorks project, so naturally I’m primarily looking at extreme horror, though not exclusively.
10k maximum, no minimum (flash fiction and poetry are acceptable if you feel you can do the theme justice with minimal words. Bear in mind though, the large proportion of material I will be looking for will be stories, so bring the best for poems etc. Three poem limit on submissions).
Multiple story submissions are fine.
Time New Roman 12 preferred. Double spaced.
Subject matter is wide open to interpretation, there is very little that is taboo here; after all it is trigger material and the exploration of it. However, remember I’m after stories, not just gore for gore’s sake, or something deliberately intended to offend or set someone off without the presence of a solid storyline. We’re after reasons, reactions, whys and hows, and so on.
This project is an experiment, so feel free to have fun with it, see what your imaginations can dredge up.
