Fright Club (12-18 Year-Olds)
From creepy tales, urban legends and supernatural spine-chillers... what lurks in your imagination?
A ghost story is a timeless classic style of creative writing and we're inviting you to write your own short story inspired by things that go bump in the night!
You could be inspired by a real place that is rumoured to be haunted, choose a supernatural being to be the star of your story or even be a ghost hunter telling us of their experiences.
Use atmosphere, tension and suspense to create your own hair-raising tale, then enter it & you could be published in a real book!
There is 250-word limit, prizes up for grabs and it's free to enter, get involved today!
