Ghost Writing Contest

Who or What Is The Ghost of The Strand Theater?

Amidst these newly renovated walls and fresh paint, a ghastly presence roams, distraught that The Strand has been revitalized. As it traverses the deathly silent theater, the damp air becomes saturated. The floors creak and the old projectors, displayed as museum relics, seem to flicker and come to life. The specter of The Strand is in our midst!

At least that’s what WE think should happen! Every theater has to have a ghost, but as far as we know, we don’t have one. That’s where YOU come in. If you’re a student in grade 7 through 12, we want YOU to create a legend of a ghost that haunts The Strand.

Be Fanciful! Be Frightful! Be Brief! Tell Us in 500 Words or less. You may enter as often as you like, but a $5 Entry Fee must accompany each individual submission.
