Young Writers Ghost Story Competition
Young Writers ghost story competition is 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!
Thank you to Orion Children's Books and Random House for supplying us with our 1st place prizes!
