GHOST STORY COMPETITION

" A cold night in the early 1900s. Rosabeth and her husband Albert were just having a drink at the local pub when a man walked in and took out a sword. By the time he was finished with the horrible act, police were there and shot him dead without thinking. The victims were thrown into mass graves to prevent disease from spreading and they say their spirits still walk the old pub..."

The chilling opening to Michael Egan's suspense filled, prize winning, ghost story just in time for Halloween. Michael was inspired by stories read in class, discussions and a visit to Mary King's Close to write his fantastic story set in Edinburgh. Michael's class entered a ghost story writing competition organised by City of Edinburgh Tours for all Edinburgh schools; Michael's story was the runner up in the S1-S3 category. The winning stories will be made into a small book. Well done Michael! This is an amazing achievement!
