As part of our on-going commitment to the local community, we’re challenging all budding young writers to create a spooky story this Halloween and be in with the chance of winning a special prize for themselves and their school.
Youngsters of all ages are invited to let their imaginations run wild and write a story by finishing this opening paragraph:
The cold night air surrounded Sarah as she walked along the deserted cobbles, alone. Aware it was Halloween, Sarah thought of her friends all out trick or treating and wished she was with them. A noise sounded in the distance, which Sarah realised was getting closer and closer. Holding her breath, she stopped in her tracks and slowly, carefully, turned her head...
What happens next to Sarah is up to the young writers. Those taking part are invited to email their story to TheForum@pmwcom.co.uk or post to The Forum Shopping Centre’s Spooky Stories Competition, c/o PMW Communications Ltd, Stane Court, Stane Street, Billingshurst, West Sussex, RH14 9HP by the closing date of Sunday 14th October.
The winning child will not only receive a handful of prizes, but their school will also win a £100 voucher to spend at The Works in The Forum.
Monica Rana, Centre Manager of The Forum Shopping Centre, commented: “The aim of this competition is to encourage children to develop their writing skills, especially in the age of computers and spell checks, as having good writing skills can help our children in so many avenues. Children have such wonderful imaginations and, with Halloween just around the corner, we’re really looking forward to receiving some spine tingling tales.”
