Winning Fears

It’s the time you’ve all been waiting for. It’s time to announce the winners of the Rusty Fears horror short story writing competition.

The response to our very first competition was staggering to say the least – you all delivered very enthusiastically to the tune of 94 entries! Thanks to everyone who submitted entries and spread the word. The judging panel (comprising Alex, Jonny & Anil) eventually narrowed it down to a shortlist of 10 and from those, after much deliberation, has chosen their winners… <<drumroll.wav>>

CONGRATULATIONS to Melissa Mason for Paint and Elizabeth Richardson for Lucid.

These stories will now undergo the Rusty Quill treatment and be turned into dramatic readings. Stay tuned to The Magnus Archives feed to hear the final productions, coming late April/early May!
