5th Annual
Halloween Ghost Story Contest -- 2002

Nowhere else in the world has as rich a literary history in the horror genre as New England. Edgar Allan Poe & H. P. Lovecraft (arguably the two greatest horror authors who ever lived) were both born in New England and lived out portions of their lives here (the former in Boston, MA; the latter in Providence, RI). Even some of the best known modern horror authors (most notably Stephen King, born in Portland, ME) hail from our section of the country.

Building on this rich local tradition and in a spirit of fun, we're offering our fifth annual Ghost Story Contest.

Check out this year's official rules to get started. (Please note they have changed a little since last year.) Also be sure to see our new contest option.

Entries must be received no later than October 26th, and the winners will be posted throughout Halloween night. Authors of stories that get posted will win a free T-shirt.

Feel free to take a peek at last year's winners or scan through some of our other contests...
