Dear Writers:


In 2021, Haunted Pamlico and the Pamlico Writers Group are teaming up again to sponsor the second-annual Haunt Season Writing Competition. We're seeking poems, ghost stories, creepy tales, science fiction or horror fiction related to the haunting season, which peaks in October.

We will accept prose entries of 2,000 words or poems of unspecified length by email at hauntedpamlico1@gmail.com. We'll take submissions from May 1 through Aug. 1. The entries will be judged by the Writers Group and Haunted Pamlico. We'll present awards to a winner and two finalists during our Carnival of Darkness film festival in September. Selected entries may appear in a Pamlico Writers Group anthology.


When you enter, please include your full name, email address and mailing address in the body of the email. All work must be original, and you must hold exclusive rights to any work you submit. 

It's free to enter the competition, which is open to writers anywhere. For more information, email us at hauntedpamlico1@gmail.com.

Good luck!

Haunted Pamlico and Alternative Stage proudly announce a fundraiser for J.B. Beverley's short horror film, "The Killer Among Us."

To learn about donation tiers, visit the film's website, thekilleramongus.com. You can help make J.B.'s vision and ours a reality.

We're co-producing this project with Romero Pictures and Rebel Roots Productions.

We hope the film will showcase eastern North Carolina, and we're working on location scouting in the Washington, N.C., area this week.

Thanks to writer-director J.B. Beverley for trusting us to co-produce this great project. We'll have a lot more news soon.
