Good news for all you English speakers! We've just opened up our Tibetan ghost story competition to stories written in English. If it's related to Tibet and it's under 5 pages, we want to read it! New deadline is October 1. Send your spookiest stuff to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. www.trace.org/events/
From “hungry ghosts” (yidag)—spirits with tiny throats and huge insatiable stomachs—to exorcism festivals, ghost dances, and spirit traps, Tibet lays claim to one one of the world’s richest . . . and spookiest traditions of ghosts. To showcase the richness of Tibetan ghost stories and to celebrate Halloween, we invite you to send us your scariest, most hair-raising entries for a Tibetan ghost story competition. Our panel will select and translate into English and Tibetan five of your nominated stories. Then, on October 24, join us in our library or online (via Livestream) to vote on the three most terrifying, grisly, and spine-chilling stories. The three winning stories will receive sweet prizes (including dinner for two, jewelry, gift certificates, and more) and the top five will be published on trace.org in Tibetan and English.
I might have to kiss a dead body first, before coming back to you with my story, check it out here.
