Topic: Do you believe in spirits? According to a recent Beliefnet poll, 77 percent of our readers believe they have been in the presence of a ghost or apparition. For Halloween, we’d like to collect some of those paranormal stories from you to share. Whether the spirit is that of your guardian angel, a deceased loved one, or an unfamiliar entity, we want to hear about your otherworldy encounters and see pictures of your sightings, if you have any. Beliefnet will publish the best stories and photos for our community this holiday.
What to do: 1. Write your story in 250 words or less. 2. Find photos that help tell it (i.e: the room where your spirit resides, a picture of the ghost). 3. Email both to the below address.
Send to:email@example.com by this Friday, and you may see your story in an upcoming Beliefnet feature. Subject line should be "My Spirit Encounter."
Deadline: Friday, Oct. 27, 2006.
Include your name, your occupation, your city/state of residency.
All images and writing must be original to you. If you are submitting a work that has been previously published elsewhere, please make sure there will be no conflict before submitting to us. We just want to remind you that, per our terms of service, Beliefnet trusts that you only send material you actually own (i.e. not other people's copyrighted materials) and by sending it to us, you grant us and our editorial partners the right to use it in any form.
