Shivery: Chilling Tales of Horror
Pull up a seat and listen to some creepy stories submitted by library patrons across the county and narrated by the Script Keeper, a local author and library employee.
Seeking submissions: Tell us your original scary story—fact or fiction. Email your manuscript (1,000 words or less) to email@example.com by October 15. Approved submissions will be narrated by our Script Keeper and shared during our Halloween broadcast of Shivery: Chilling Tales of Horror. Viewers can vote for their favorite story.
Guidelines: Content should be appropriate for all ages. 1,000-words maximum. By submitting a story you authorize Washoe County Library System to read the story and post it to the library's various social media sites, and you affirm that it is 100 percent your original work. In the submission, please note the name you'd like used, keeping in mind the video will be made public. No last names will be used. Submissions encouraged and accepted from all ages.
