Our July Book of the Month, The Revenant by Sonia Gensler, crosses over many genres and themes — but at the very heart of the plot is a ghost story. So for this month’s writing contest, we want you to think creepy and spooky! Here are the details:
In 250-500 words, write a ghost story (or the beginning of a ghost story). It can take place in any time period, any location, etc. Just think of the different elements of what makes a good ghost story. Keep us on the edge of our seat! Thrill us!
And hey, if you need more pointers, tune in tomorrow, when we’ll feature different elements of the ghost story.
Once you’ve written your story, submit it along with the other important information in our The Revenant Ghost Story Writing Contest Entry Form.
