The Ghost Hand YA Short Story Contest

I LOVE Contests.

I love entering them, I love running them, and I REALLY love judging them. So, as a way of celebrating the upcoming November 2012 release of my YA paranormal thriller, Ghost Hand, I have decided to run a writing contest just for YA-ers.

If you READ YA, and LOVE YA, and ARE YA, this contest is FOR YOU.

After all, who better to write the experience of being a young adult than young adults themselves? And now’s your chance to prove what you’ve always known: that you can write better YA than most of the adults out there doing it. Plus, you could win a wad of spending money, a signed copy of Ghost Hand, and get your story published in Ghost Hunt, book two of the Ghost Hand series (coming in 2013).

For more details on how and when to enter go HERE.

  • What are the limitations?
    Size maximum? (or minimum?)
    Formatting requirements?
    Content requirements? (I.e; does it HAVE to be about Young Adults?)

    (by the way, I’m the leader of Trillium’s Writer’s Workshop! We look forward to entering and maybe talking with you later~)

  • Ripley:

    Ivy, great to see you here:) I’d LOVE to get some submission from Trillium, or come talk and write with the Workshop some time.

    All the submission details can be found on THIS PAGE, as indicated in the last sentence above.

    Feel free to ask more if you still have questions.



Ripley Patton lives in a 22-foot camper in the woods of Southern Illinois with a cat named Lemmy. Her two young adult children, a daughter and a son, are her favorite people. When Ripley's not out exploring nature and getting her hands dirty, she's usually reading or writing a book.
