BOO! Short And Scary Story Contest

Calling young Stephen Kings and Anne Rices out there — The Independent’s BOO! Short and Scary Story Contest is underway again.

Students are invited to submit Halloween-themed artwork and spooky essays or poems to The Independent for publication, and possibly be awarded a medal too! Thirteen winners will be chosen and have their work published.

Stories should not exceed 800 words, and can be as short as a couplet. All ages from pre-K to high school seniors are invited. Art can be delivered to our offices at the Red Horse Plaza, 74 Montauk Highway, Suite 19, East Hampton, or can be scanned and emailed to bridget@indyeastend.com.

Include the name of each student, teacher, grade, and school.

Stories can be emailed to us at bridget@indyeastend.com with the subject heading “BOO Submission.” The deadline is Tuesday, October 16.
