Winners of the 1st Annual Haunt Jaunts Horror Writing Contest

HJ Horror Writing Contest Winners 350x350We are super excited about our 1st Annual Horror Writing Contest! What a great response we had!

We figured we may only get a handful of submissions. Nope. We ended up getting 17!

That didn’t make our judges’ jobs easy either. There were a lot of good stories in there. It proved difficult to pick three winners.

Speaking of our fabulous judges, thank you so much again to Christine Verstraete, who writes as C.A. Verstraete, and Phillip Creighton, who writes as P.W. Creighton. They did a phenomenal job of staying on top of all the entries and judging them in a super expeditious manner.

So who were our big winners?

  1. First Place goes to “The Easy Way” by Matthew Weber
  2. Second Place goes to “House and Garden” by Elizabeth Hosang
  3. Third Place goes to “In the Dark Lurk Quiet Things” by Morgan Griffith

Congratulations to our winners! Nicely done.

We also want to award Honorable Mention to “Waiting for GP” by Justin Gustainis.

If you click the story titles linked to the winning stories, you can read them.

Thank you again to everyone who entered and helped make our first contest simply spooktacular!

Happy Halloween!
