In collaboration with Little Brown’s digital imprint Blackfriars (which is on the search for new writing talent), the winning entry will be published as a free ebook. The winner and the first two runners up will win a Kobo e-reader and the entire shortlist will have their stories published on emeraldstreet.com.
Emerald Street had an enormous impact on the writing career of a SkyLightRain favourite Rachael Chadwick, so being feature by them is a pretty fabulous prize in itself!
To enter the writing competition you need to write an original ghost story or supernatural thriller of 2,000-3,000 words (in English) “with a fresh and distinctive voice.”
Entering is free, but you must be subscribed to the Emerald Street email (also free) to submit your story. The deadline for submissions is Monday 5 January 2015.
Entries will be judged by the Emerald Street team, and winners will be notified by email. The results of the competition will be announced in Emerald Street in January 2015.
