Supernatural Fiction Award

Twice each year TGS awards $1,500 and both online and print publication to the winner of our short story competition. Ghost stories are welcome, of course—but your submission may involve any paranormal or supernatural theme, as well as magic realism. What we’re looking for is fine writing, fresh perspectives, and maybe a few surprises in the field of supernatural fiction. Story length should run between 1,500 and 10,000 words. The winning stories are selected by the editors of The Ghost Story, and contest winners have included writers with a long history of publishing their work and/or winning awards, as well as writers who have never before published a story.
