Hocus Pocus Contest


Curiosity towards supernatural entities or incidents gives us the adrenaline rush; almost like satiating our thirst for adventure. These adventures, however much truth they hold, make chills run down our spine and are enough to give us goosebumps. Our minds can wander off to places and we may weave stories of such adrenaline rush. This is a contest for supernatural junkies and wondrous storytellers. Submit your short story entries on any fictional or non-fictional supernatural incident.
