I am the Ghost of Christmas present” said the spirit. “Look upon me!”
-Charles Dickens, Christmas Carol
This Christmas, Miracle Magazine and What The Dickens! Magazine brings a very spooky contest for you to plug the strings of your creativity. This competition is all about the sound of the creaking door, the clattering of the crockery, the demoniac laugh and the ghost of past. It is about dragging your spookiness into some wobbly ghostly literary pieces!
The winners of this contest will be published in an anthology by the two magazines to be launched in February 2014. Also, the top winner in each of the category will be awarded with a cash prize. So, what are you waiting for? Wear you ‘headless earl’ or ‘suicide’s skeleton’ attire and cave in!
