The Spook Squad (For 5-11 Year-Olds)
Get your child involved in writing a ghost story today...
A ghost story is such a popular style of creative writing that never goes out of fashion! We're inviting children aged 5-11 to write their own spook-tacular short story...
Budding writers could be inspired by a ghost, monster, vampire or creepy place such as a graveyard or an old house in the woods.
Enter your child into the competition and they could be published in a real book and receive a certificate.
There is 250-word limit, prizes up for grabs and it's free to enter... why not get your child inspired to write a short ghost story today?
