The Austin Daily Herald is looking for spooky submissions.

Send the Herald a short story, poem or picture to be featured in an upcoming publication. The top three get a $10 gift certificate to Perkins in Austin, and three runners-up get a two-week subscription to the Herald.

Do you have a first-hand account of something haunted? Or maybe a creepy story or poem from your imagination, or a Halloween-themed photo or drawning. If it’s spooky, we want it.
