Talinn Hatti is this year’s Town Crier Spooky Stories contest winner. The 11-year-old sixth-grader won for the story “Gargoyle’s Trick,” about a father-son experience at Ghost Mansion.
The Town Crier asked readers to weigh in on their favorites, and Talinn’s entry received the most praise. Honorable mentions go to John Allan’s “Something Fishy,” Laura Allan’s “The Doll” and Scott Klusaw’s “A Halloween Ribbing.”
Talinn will receive a prize, yet to be determined, for the winning story.
“Thanks to all who participated this year,” said Town Crier Editor Bruce Barton. “We’re looking forward to even more participation for next year’s contest.”
