2018 Fiction Desk Ghost Story Competition
The 2018 edition of the Fiction Desk Ghost Story Competition is now open for entries.
This year there’s a first prize of £500, along with second and third prizes. Entry costs £8, and the closing date is Wednesday, 31st January 2018. (The competition closes at midnight UK time, so don’t get caught out if you’re sending an entry from overseas.)
The main page of the competition can be found right here. Full terms of entry can be found at the bottom of our online entry form.
Winners from the last two years appear in our latest anthology, New Ghost Stories III. It’s well worth picking up a copy if you want to see the stories that have been successful in the past – or if you just want a good spooky read to get you through the winter nights
