THE GHOST STORY SUPERNATURAL FICTION AWARD WINNERS

The Ghost Story Supernatural Fiction Award competition takes place twice yearly, with a cash award of $1,000 for the winning short stories, and prizes of $250 and $100 for Honorable Mentions and Second Honorable Mentions, respectively. The contest is not limited to traditional ghost stories: it’s open to any story containing a supernatural theme or element. The winning (not necessarily ghostly) stories are published on Midsummer’s Eve and Halloween. Please see our contest Guidelines for information on deadlines and other details.
