Each winner will receive a £20 reward, a place in the ‘founding authors’ section of the homepage for any future releases, as well as pride of place in our ‘Seasonal Stories’ section on the homepage (alongside runners up). Winners will be chosen by members of our Rogue Reader group, make sure you’ve joined so that you can vote.
The deadline for entries is December 10th, giving readers time to choose their favourites. Winners will be announced on December 20th. Submit via the upload section (following the guidelines on our submissions page).

We’re looking for 5,000 word ghost stories. Submission should include a suitable cover and synopsis. The story must be an original creation, and not published elsewhere. The work must be in English.
