The SPOOKY Halloween first page contest was a “howling” success. Stories from lost houses to changelings on a school campus to a child that lures a young boy into a ghost dance for eternity.
The ghastly ghouls have agreed that the winner of the first MG/YA Spooky first page contest is:
Donna Smith with her “Lost House” entry.
Congratulations, Donna. Please send your 5 chapters as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org within the first five days of November—the submission period for First Peek Critique.
when the moon shines bright in the sky,
and ghosts and witches on broomsticks fly by,
be aware of noises,
But don’t shiver with fright.
It’s only the spirit of Halloween night.
