Did I scare you? Well, this is your chance to return the favor!
Your mission–should you choose to accept–is to write a Halloween story that will keep us administrators up at night! Are ghosts your thing? Spook us with it! Is there something hiding in your closet? Bring it out so we can see! Can’t stand creepy-crawlies? Tingle our spines with it! Did you spend a few hours in a haunted prison? Oh my God, ME TOO!
Some (haunted) house rules: you may post double-spaced fiction, non-fiction, or poetry as long as it is Halloween related! All entries must have a minimum word count of a devilish 666! Scary? 750 is scarier (for a maximum word count that is)! Please send entries to email@example.com as a “doc” attachment (NOT “docx”) by midnight Samhain OCTOBER 31ST, 2016! There is a $10 entry fee! Fee is waived for you boys and ghouls currently attending University of Idaho!
