In 2021, Haunted Pamlico and the Pamlico Writers Group are teaming up again to sponsor the second-annual Haunt Season Writing Competition. We’re seeking poems, ghost stories, creepy tales, science fiction or horror fiction related to the haunting season, which peaks in October.
We will accept prose entries of 2,000 words or poems of unspecified length by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take submissions from May 1 through Aug. 1. The entries will be judged by the Writers Group and Haunted Pamlico. We’ll present awards to a winner and two finalists during our Carnival of Darkness film festival in September.
Selected entries may appear in a Pamlico Writers Group anthology.
When you enter, please include your full name, email address and mailing address in the body of the email. All work must be original, and you must hold exclusive rights to any work you submit.
It’s free to enter the competition, which is open to writers anywhere. For more information, email us at email@example.com.
