I’ve just heard about this competition which closes in a week, but with only 50 words to write you can hit the deadline easily – can’t you?
Write a ghost story for The Times in 50 words and win £200 worth of books (selected for you, not by you) and a signed set of Susan Hill’s ghost stories. Email or post by 5 pm on Tuesday 23 Oct, UK and ROI residents only. Full details here. For tips from Susan Hill on writing to spook, read her article online.
A fun challenge that may plant the seed for a short story or novel further down the line… Good luck!
