What is it?

In honor of the ghost story competition where Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein in June 1816, Marshmallow Commonwealth will be holding a ghost story competition of our own!

Create your own spooky story through whatever medium you want (draw pictures, write a traditional story, make a video, etc.) and post about your progress on social media using the #ghostwriter19 tag. You’ll be able to submit your work via a Google Form anytime between June 1, 2019 – June 30, 2019 to be eligible for one of several prizes.

What can I submit?

The contest is open to many topics and mediums! You can create a written piece, art, videos, etc., and it can be spooky, spoopy, or just a fun paranormal adventure. If you don’t finish by the end of the month, you can still enter the giveaway by just submitting your work-in-progress or a description of your project.

What can I not submit?

The Marshmallow Commonwealth upholds certain ideals, so any pieces deemed offensive (sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, etc.) will not be accepted or eligible for prizes. Troll posts will also be sent back under the bridge from whence they came.

What are the prizes, and how can I win them?
