Teen Writing Contest: Tales of Terror

We received 39 entries for our Teen Read Month writing contest, which ended on Hallowe'en. The challenge was to write a scary story, tell a tale of terror, and be a master of the macabre, and Burbank teens stepped up, with such terrifying titles as “The Revengeful Ghost,” “The Werewolf in the Mist,” “Dance of the Dead,” and “Her Evil Twin.” On the contest flyer, we indicated that we would announce the three prize-winning entries on Tuesday, November 10, at a screening of Twilight. Unfortunately, that event has been cancelled, so we will instead notify the three top writers by telephone and/or email. Thanks to everyone who submitted--we teen librarians expect to have a nightmare-filled week reading all your stories!
