Join the Herald's Halloween short story contest
THE first fear-filled fiction for The Herald's Halloween short story contest has begun materialising in our post bag – but we want more submissions please.
The Herald will publish a Plymouth author's terrifying short story, on October 31, and we want all you budding horror writers to get busy with your tales of ghosts, ghouls, vampires, werewolves, zombies – or worse.
The Herald will print the best one, but remember we're a family newspaper and want to be frightened, not put off our tea – so nothing too violent or gory.
The story must be a maximum of 3,000 words, but there is no minimum length. It must reach The Herald no later than 9am on Wednesday, October 24.

The competition is open to anyone, whether previously published or novice.
It will be judged by a guest. There is no prize other than publication.
