Enter our Halloween story contest  about the Fire Witch!!
We all know that witches are not real but objects of fantasy. But, in keeping with the Halloween season, let's play "What if?" Write your story about the  Glendale Fire Witch standing in the burning window of the mill. The mill burned on March 20, 2004 and was expertly photographed by Mr. Terry Gilmer.  Answer such questions such as -Who was she? - Why was she in the window? - Did she start the fire or was she trying to put it out? - Where did she come from or was she from Glendale? Use your imagination and make your story original!

There will be one competition for students and another for adults. Maximum length for the story is 1,000 words.

Stories must be received by Halloween Day, October 31, 2008. Be sure and tell us your name, age and email address or regular address.
