Calling all kids! Do you have what it takes to create your own spooky Halloween story?

The Courier and Scone Palace are partnering in a scarily exciting competition to find a young writer with a terrifying tale to tell.

Frightfully good — Read the winning stories in our Spirits of Scone Halloween competition

We’re looking for just the right story to grab us – a combination of spine-tingling and page-turning. So if you’re ghoulishly inclined and a whizz with words and storytelling, we want to hear from you!

 

The prize

Enter our competition for young writers and you could win a visit to this year’s Spirits of Scone at Scone Palace. PLUS: Your story will appear on The Courier’s website.

The deadline for entries is Monday October 16. The winner will be invited to a preview reception on October 26 at the Palace, receive tickets for the show, and get a family season pass for 2018.

They’ll have their story published on this website plus they’ll get the chance to do their own personal video review of the Spirits of Scone event!
