Young Writers are holding a ghost story competition, open to all young writers aged up to 18 years old. Whether you’ve written a spine-chilling tale packed full of suspense, or a ghostly story that’s actually quite funny, they’d love to read it!
All successful stories will be published in a book alongside other spooky tales from budding storytellers!
An overall winner in each publication will win a fabulous Collection of either “The Spook’s Stories” by Joseph Delaney or “Raven Mysteries” by Marcus Sedgwick. Two runners-up will each receive a Staedtler home office set and a pack of Triplus Fineliner’s all thanks to Staedtler!
Ghost Stories is an ongoing competition so there is no closing date. Once they have enough entries to edit a book they will contact the successful writers.
Stories can be a maximum of 250 words.
Entries can be typed or handwritten and should be on A4 paper.
