REAL Ghost Stories - Writing Contest & More

Recommended Posts

“Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.” Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_the_Dead)

It is also said that at this time of year, the veil between our world and the next is thinnest. Seances, prayer candles, family altars and memorials all attest to the fact that the people “left behind” wish to communicate with those on the other side; and in many cases, “they” try and sometimes succeed in communicating with us.

PCX Adult Arts and Literature is sponsoring a REAL LIFE story telling event on November 1st, “Day of the Dead”. Weave spine-chilling tales or share REAL LIFE experience(s), which puts you in the running for SIX randomly chosen chances to win L$, plus your story will be read by one of our readers, unless you opt to read it for us, following the Dia de Muertos music & dancing.

Come in Costume and enter our costume contest. Three winners will win, based on peer voting.
