Having picked the macabre Barcelona Shadows for our autumn Litro Book Club read, and with Halloween fast approaching, Litro got to thinking… we can’t deny that we like a good spook / horror story. Among author Marc Pastor’s many talents are his illustrative abilities, and he’s agreed to give the winner of our Horror-themed Haiku competition a signed copy of Barcelona Shadows – with an original sketch/cartoon of Enriqueta Marti by the author. Our friends at Pushkin will also throw in a goody bag of great books, and on top of that Litro is offering the winner a year’s free membership!
And so, we want to read (via haiku—we are a literary magazine after all) your scariest haiku. That ghost story you’ve been meaning to write, that time you walked through darkened streets on your way home after a night out… we dare you to scare us. Give us your worst – or best, for that matter!
Send us a haiku (or a bunch of them), remember we want to be spooked out of our skin. Get creative. You can post your haikus on our Twitter page or on our Facebook page. Be certain to use the hashtag #litrohaiku to make sure that we see them!
PLEASE NOTE: This competition has now closed. The winner will be announced on 15th October.
The winner will receive a signed copy of Barcelona Shadows with an original sketch/cartoon of Enriqueta Marti by Marc Pastor, a goody bag of titles from our wonderful friends at Pushkin Press, and a year’s Membership to Litro Magazine – if you’re already a member you can save it as an early Christmas present to a loved one!
