If you’ve ever read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark or browsed around on Reddit's 'no sleep' section online, then you know that even a short tale can send shivers down your spine.

With Halloween only weeks away, the E-T is asking readers to submit a short ghost story to give folks a little scare for the holiday!

Whether your story is real or make believe, submit them and we will choose some of the best to publish in the Sunday, Oct. 30, edition of the Empire-Tribune.

Send your story to aowens@empiretribune.com and please include your name, residence and a contact where number you can be reached at.

Submissions are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26.
