ArtsGroupie's Christmas Ghost Story Contest

Announcing the 2023 Winners!

After 14 creative writing workshops over Liverpool City Region in community hubs and libraries, we were delighted to receive over 100 entries for our Ghost Stories For Xmas Writing Competition, showcasing a remarkable wealth of talent and creativity in the region.

The competition was fierce, with an exceptionally high standard of entries which made the selection process challenging. A shortlist of ten was then presented to our friends at Liverpool Literary Agency to select the top three. We are proud to showcase the work here on our site.

The Ghost Stories For Xmas Writing Competition will return in 2024.

Congratulations to our Prize Winners
