We are excited to announce the much awaited Results of the Weave a Ghost Story Contest!!!!

On behalf of Learning and Creativity, we wish our heartfelt thanks to all the participants and contributors of the ghost story contest and the upcoming anthology of the spooky, spine-chilling stories. Your stories moved and shook us at the core, and many of them were page-turners of tales where the narration made us see it as a movie spiraling freely and magnificently in front of our eyes as we flipped through the pages.

Keeping in mind the unique storytelling techniques and the strength of the plots, dialogues, theme, setting and characterization, Santosh Bakaya and we had a hard time in judging whom to declare the winners of the contest. We judged only the stories submitted for the contest and selected winners, whose works will find a place in the anthology along with some other good contest submissions which we found. Apart from that, selected good stories sent after the contest deadline (those without the prompts/rules etc.) will also be considered for the anthology, co-edited by us both.

Now, the most exciting part, announcing the names of the winners of the ghost story contest!

Winners

1st – Shabir Ahmed Mir for his story ‘The Last Trick’
2nd – Subhajit Sanyal for his story ‘A Grim Encounter’
3rd – Cathy Wilkes for her story ‘Silent Witness’

Special Mention

  • Sunila Kamal for her story ‘The Poltergeist’ 
  • Ramendra Kumar for his story ‘The Peepal Tree’ (for unique and very appealing storytelling)

We thank each and every contributor once again for supporting us and soon we will be announcing the names of our authors whose spine-chilling stories will adorn our ghost story anthology forthcoming in Amazon Kindle.

Best,
Santosh Bakaya & Lopa Banerjee
