Ghost stories - we've all heard them and we've all been scared by them at one time or another. They can be terribly scary or simply funny, but either way they have been an attention-grabbing form of storytelling for centuries and leave people wondering whether what they've heard is fact or fiction!

If you would like to have a go at writing a ghost story so frightful that it would have Stephen King shaking in his boots, or so funny you could give Scary Movie a run for its money, then send it in to our ghost story competition. 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 family ticket to either the Edinburgh,London or York Dungeons and two runners-up will each receive a superb reading and writing goodie bag which will include a selection of books and a Staedtler writing set!
