Group-Sponsored Halloween Contest
|Deadline:||Oct 24, 2015|
This contest is sponsored by the Horror! group.
Using the Wikipedia page for Halloween as reference, pen a thematic horror story to leave a chill in its wake on Scribophile.
Craft a Victorian Gothic, a modern slasher, a futuristic dystopian robo-pumpkin romp if you so wish, as long as it sends shivers up our collective spines and screams Halloween.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
