What’s the prompt you ask? Well here you go!:

Everyone knows that Jack climbed up the giant beanstalk and high up in the sky he found a giant and his treasure. Let’s flip the script a little and take the giant out of the equation. Write me a poem about what Jack discovers instead at the top of that big ol’ beanstalk. Be original! Use your imagination folks!!!

Hold on to your hats and tuck in those legs because it’s time for Genie to sprinkle some PIZAZZ around here!

WELCOME to the new "Fantasy Unravelled! Genie didn’t have a lot of luck with entries his short story contest so he conferred with Roland King , And what did. Roland say? Well I quote: “Dude everyone knows that short story contests are way harder to get entries for than poetry contestS. Trust me I know I am the judge for the highly successful poetry contest: "Dark Dreamscapes Poetry Contest.

So faster than you can say HAIKU!!!! Genie worked some magic and turned this contest into a poetry contest! So returning in May:

Get your pens out, your notepads ready, and pop a little pep in your step because Genie has a poetic treat for you! Yes it is another fantasy contest but this time it’s got a twist (or two) (or maybe even three! I’ll take all of the above for 800 Alex!!!). It’s going to be a veritable grab-bag, a potpourri, a charcuterie of tales with twists of a most ingenious nature. Heard the tale of Hansel and Gretel? Well what if Hansel and Gretel were actually the bad guys? Ever heard of Krampus? What if Krampus and Santa had to switch places? What if Aladdin had to become a genie? (Ha as if) Or what if Peter Pan met Alice from Wonderland? All of these prompts and more might come spinning out of this satisfying symphony of twisty unraveled tales!

PLEASE NOTE: I have multiple NEW MBs as well as custom ribbons being offered as prizes. Although not available yet you’ll soon be seeing an MB with face of yours truly on it so get those keyboards and notepads ready! Also Genie gladly accepts donations (wink wink)

See you in May!

Also hullabaloo22 you rock and thank you for the donation!

And 🌑 Darleen's writing a novel you just rock for all the reasons!!!

Round 2 Prompt:

Everyone knows that this time of year leprechauns are out in full force. St. Patrick’s Day brings about quite a few tales of leprechauns and of course the legend that of you follow a rainbow you’ll find a leprechauns’s secret pot of gold. But Genie doesn’t always want a simple story so here’s what you’re gonna do to twist things up a little:

Write a story where the leprechaun is trying to steal someone else’s gold. Make the leprechauns the bad guys in this story and to incorporate a little of the true tale of St. Patrick’s Day, your story must include snakes as an element.

Word Limit: 2500
