Kids 8-12 years old: Create a 1,000 word spooky short story!
The top stories from the contest will be published in EXHIBIT A!
This book will be part of the FrightVision Universe and mentioned in The Cursed Coin 3!
This is YOUR chance to really be part of the series!
If your story is chosen as one of the top stories, it will be published in EXHIBIT A! This book will get an awesome FrightVision cover and will be edited and published as part of the FrightVision Universe!
WAIT... there's more...
100% of the royalties earned from EXHIBIT A will be donated to causes related to kids.
How will we choose where to donate the royalties?
FrightVision has assembled the first FrightVision Board of kids who will help present causes that are important to them and they will be part of deciding on where the royalties go!
THERE'S STILL MORE...
As a special bonus... FOR EVERYONE WHO ENTERS...
Even if your story isn't chosen to be included in the book, your name will be printed at the end of EXHIBIT A. So you will also be part of the FrightVision series!
HOW AWESOME IS THAT?
Help us share this incredible opportunity for kids to create some fun and amazing stories that will officially be part of the FrightVision series!
Enter the contest and get an EXHIBIT A T-shirt to go with it! These and more new FrightVision gear are available in the FrightVisionBooks Etsy Store!
FrightVision is always trying to find new ways to incorporate kids into the series, rather than just having them as readers of it. EXHIBIT A is taking that idea to the next level and giving kids the opportunity to have their stories published as part of the FrightVision Universe!
FrightVision is looking for awesome 1,000 word spooky stories that are filled with twists and turns, and written by kids between the ages of 8 and 12 from anywhere in the world!
You can create a story about anything...
Here are some ideas to get you started ...
Perhaps there's a house on your block that gives you the creeps... What would happen if you accidentally went inside?
What about your weird cousin who you think might be a zombie?
Could you have accidentally stumbled upon a portal to another dimension?
Did you decide to explore your basement or attic at night because you heard something?
Did you eat your favorite snack and something weird happened?
Could you have found a secret buried treasure in your backyard... But instead of treasure inside, maybe there was ______ in it, instead!
What about summer camp... lost in the woods, trying to find your way back... But then the campsite is gone?
What if every time you walked through a door in your house, you went into someone else's house... But who's?
There are so many ideas for stories ... Run with one of these or create your own!
Keep an eye on the FrightVision social media pages, @FrightVisionBooks, as we'll be adding more ideas for stories!
Have fun with it!
Create an awesome character or put yourself into the story!
Visualize it and get lost in your creation!
Oh my! You're missing out! No entry for you! Just kidding!
You don't have to have read a FrightVision book to enter, but it couldn't hurt!
Basically, we're looking for fun, spooky stories that have awesome twists and turns and leave us wanting more! That's how we'll be judging the stories!
AND regardless of whether or not your story wins, you're going to be part of the FrightVision series if you enter, so you might as well get caught up! Plus, EXHIBIT A will be mentioned in The Cursed Coin 3!
But you can't read The Cursed Coin 3 without reading The Cursed Coin and The Cursed Coin 2 (along with all of the other FrightVision books)!
We will be reviewing old contest entries and your story might be chosen as one of them. If that's the case, we will reach out to you! But, the best way to make sure you're entered is to create a new story!
If your entry is chosen as one of the top stories, it will be PUBLISHED in a book with other stories written by kids! It'll be part of the FrightVision Universe!
AND I will send either a digital copy of the book or a paperback version of EXHIBIT A (depending on location--US vs International) to each kid who has their story published.
The number of stories published will depend on the number of entries. We are hoping to publish 30-50 stories! But there could be more or less! We will make an announcement as we get closer to the deadline!
Below are the rules of the contest. Please contact us if you have any questions.
