Two-Sentence Horror Story? We want to hear yours.

Two-Sentence Horror Story? We want to hear yours.


Wanna Read Something Scary?

We do.

“There was a picture in my phone of me sleeping. I live alone.”

“I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, ‘Daddy check for monsters under my bed.’ I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, ‘Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.’

(Credit goes to Reddit for the inspiration.)

Everyone has a horror story to tell… But can you tell it in two sentences?

Ace invites you to tell us a ghost story in two sentences.

Tweet it to us, facebook it to us, or email it to us the old-fashioned way ( by September 24 (subject line: Ace Scares). A panel of all-star celebrity Lexington literary judges will narrow the field, and Ace readers will be able to vote for their favorites via all of our social media channels. The official hashtag is #AceScares.


We’ll print a selection of some of the most frightening entries in our October 1 issue. And because we know great Writers must first be great Readers, the scribe who pens the scariest story (as determined by the all-star judges and social media voting) will get a Kindle Fire.
