Budding Stephen Kings have until 5 p.m. Friday to tell us the scariest Las Vegas-based horror stories they can imagine.
We’ll print a few of the best entries we receive in our HorrorFest ’11 story-writing competition in our Oct. 30 Living section and put more of them up online. But remember: We’re looking for original stories, not for retellings of stories, TV shows or movies you’ve seen or read somewhere else.
Keep your stories to 500 words or less and send them to: HorrorFest ’11, Las Vegas Review-Journal Features Department, P.O. Box 70, Las Vegas, NV, 89125-0070. Or email them to jprzybys@reviewjournal. com (put HorrorFest in the subject line). Or fax them to 383-4676.
And to make Halloween even sweeter, we’ll award $50 to the creators of the best story we read in the adult category (18 and older) and the best story we read in the youth category (17 and younger).
