Event Details

The Ghost Story Supernatural Fiction Award is an international English-language competition for short stories incorporating a supernatural or magic realism theme or element. The winner and two Honorable Mentions receive cash awards and publication.

What we value most highly in our contest: Fine writing, originality, and a bit of the unexpected. Reading some or all of our past winners—all available on our website—will give you an even better idea of the caliber of work we’re looking for.

We are keen to encourage quality, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
