Sunderland's Spooky Stories is back in the autumn term as part of Sunderland’s ‘Lights Out’ festival for Halloween.
It's time to start thinking about how you will frighten the residents of Sunderland with terrifying and gruesome tales to steal their breath away.
Currently, the timetable looks a bit like this -
Wednesday 1 September | Entries open
Friday 1 October | Competition closes
Monday 4 to Monday 18 October | Judging happens
Friday 22 October | Winners announced
Friday 29 October | Stories released for everyone to enjoy!
We are looking forward to meeting your zombies, vampires, ghosts, and ghouls or read edgy plots with a sinister twist that has the Judges on the edge of their seats!
Anything goes as long as it just 500 words and meets the deadline of Friday 1 October.
