About the competition

The Ghost Story Supernatural Fiction Award is an international English-language competition for short stories incorporating a supernatural or magic realism theme or element. The winner and two Honorable Mentions receive cash awards and publication.

What we value most highly in our contest: Fine writing, originality, and a bit of the unexpected. Reading some or all of our past winners—all available on our website—will give you an even better idea of the caliber of work we’re looking for.

Competition guideline

 Ghost stories are welcome, of course—but your submission may involve any paranormal or supernatural theme. 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. Please be assured that we will read and carefully evaluate ALL submissions to The Ghost Story Supernatural Fiction Award. Multiple entries are permitted. Simultaneous submissions are OK—but we cannot accept previously published material. Click SUBMIT to register and upload your story.
