In addition to not having yet received any Elementary School entries yet for our Twenty-Third Annual Halloween Ghost Story Writing Contest, we have also not yet received any Interactive Fiction entries. If you have ever wanted to try your hand at writing interactive fiction, this is a great place to start!

The office will be closed today for the holiday. Regularly updated pages will continue to be updated, and contest entries submitted will continue to be received.

We still have not yet received a single elementary school entry for our 23rd Annual Halloween Ghost Story Writing Contest. With things being as chaotic in school as they are this year, this is perhaps not too surprising. If you are a kid in elementary school who likes writing but have always been afraid of entering the contest, this could be your year!

October is here, and that means the deadline for submitting your ghost story for the Annual Halloween Ghost Story Contest is just a few weeks away.

Today is the last day of September so time is ticking down for you to enter our annual Halloween Ghost Story Contest.

This is just a reminder that in honor of the natural horror that is 2020 we plan to give out custom face masks to all winning Ghost Story Contest authors (in addition to their regular T-shirts) plus some additional interactive fiction authors even if they do not win. These masks will feature the mysterious and underused Logo, so when people see it they will know it means something but will likely have no idea what. Always leave them guessing!

So yes, we accidentally linked to our past 2002 Halloween Ghost Story Contest instead of the current 2020 Halloween Shost Story Contest a couple of times last week and we are sorry. They were typos and all the links should be fixed now, and you can still read all past winning stories.

The last weekend of September is upon us. It is time to get writing your ghost story for Halloween.
