Last year, we hosted a scary story contest for Halloween, and the submissions were delightfully frightening — so much that we want to do it again.
If you love Halloween and short stories, write one and send it to us using the form below. We’re excited to read your submissions!
2 Runners-up: $25
Final Submission Due Date
You must enter your submission to the form below by 8 a.m. MST on Thursday, October 18.
Announcement of Winners
We will announce contest winners on the blog on Thursday, October 25.
Keep your submission to 1,000 words. We won’t accept stories that exceed this word count.
We’ll judge submissions with three criteria in mind:
- How scary is this submission?
- How gripping or interesting is this submission?
- How well is this submission written? Is it polished, clear, and grammatically correct?
As always, keep our general contest rules in mind, and remember that WritersDomain does not accept explicit content. If you have questions about this contest, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This contest is now closed.
