More Winning Fears

A new year, a new competition, and a new winner… It’s time to announce the winning entry in this year’s horror short story writing competition, Rusty Fears 2 – Fear More…

The year we asked you for your offerings on the theme of Urban Legends and you all definitely delivered to the tune of 68 entries! Thanks to everyone who submitted stories and spread the word. The judging panel (comprising Alex, Jonny & Anil) narrowed it down to a shortlist and from those made the difficult decision for their winning story… <<drumroll.wav>>
