Note: remove identifying information from manuscript for anonymous judging.

Theme: Noncorporeal – This is not horror, though there may be suspense and even a dash of horror. A spooky, haunting element is certainly expected. Humor and mystery beats are welcome.
Noncorporeal – Not composed of matter; having no material existence. At least one paranormal entity must fit this criteria.
Express yourself as the theme moves you.

There is no restriction as to how you incorporate the theme into your story as long as the genre falls within Speculative Fiction, including Sci-Fi or Fantasy. We encourage you to weave the theme into an engaging story with well-developed characters and deep emotion.
