Love & Pain/Vampire Edvard Munch

In conjunction with the Stoker Dracula International Halloween Festival of Horror 29th – 31st October 2010, entries are invited for the Stoker Academy Gothic Horror Writing Competition. This is your chance to get that spine chilling ghost story off your chest – and display your writing skills as well!

The competition is open to everyone, everywhere! The scope of the theme field is just about limitless…..ghosts, vampires, banshees, death, blood, haunted houses, spooky graveyards, creepy bell towers, gruesome dungeons, horror castles, scary blood curdling noises, eerie nightmares, macabre happenings….all can be real or imagined!

All entries must be in English and the theme must be gothic/horror with a maximum of 2000 words.

Entries can be in the form of a prose piece, a short story, a poem, a play (drama) or even a song or ballad.

Entries must be typed on A4 size paper (on one side only) with a one inch margin. Your entry must be your own unpublished work and must not have won a prize in a previous competition. You may enter more than once if you wish, but entries cannot be returned.

There is a €10 entry fee per entry – no cash in the post, just cheques or money orders made out to The Stoker Dracula Organisation.

Entries from under 16’s must be signed by a parent/guardian/teacher/community leader.
