Championship of Chills! A Spooky Short Story Contest.

It was a dark and stormy night… or was it a bright and sunny day, not giving any sort of clue to the mayhem that was soon to come. Or maybe it was a quiet day at the library, a little too quiet. You get to decide because you are the author in SPL’s Championship of Chills, a Goosebumps inspired spooky story contest. Visit for a helpful writing guide for young authors.

Authors should be under the age of 18. AF
Stories and characters should be original.
Stories should be between 1,000 and 5,000 words (about 4 to 20 pages double spaced).
Stories should be similar to Goosebumps in tone; in other words not too violent or too much gore!
Stories should feature at least one scene set at a library.

Contest will last until October 24, 2022 when all final drafts are due. Those interested in receiving feedback on their first draft should submit by October 1, 2022.
