CAN you write a gripping ghost story? Why not enter The News’s popular Christmas writing competition?
Stories can be set in times gone by or the modern world. There are two age categories – one for authors aged 15 and under and one for those aged 16 and above.
Your story must be no more than 1,000 words long and it must be all your own work.
E-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to Christmas Ghost Story Competition, Features Department, The News, 1000 Lakeside, North Harbour, Portsmouth PO6 3EN by December 13.
