Cumming Meeting Room

Writers’ Night of Fright is a celebration of author Mary Shelley that showcases the original written works of Adult and High School patrons. Interested patrons may submit horror or science fiction flash-fiction (500 words maximum), micro-fiction, or poetry to present at the program.

Not a fan of presentations or writing, but love all-things spooky? Not a problem! You can still register and attend to listen to stories that are bound to keep you up at night.

Dress your best! Come and mingle with others in Victorian or Steampunk attire.

This program is intended for Adults and High School patrons only. Registration is required.

Submission Guidelines:

Submissions may not exceed 500 words and may not contain any explicit language and/or content. To submit, please email your original work as a Word document to by Wednesday, 19 October. In the Word document, please include the following at the top of the first page:

  1. The title
  2. Your library card number
  3. The name you would like to have associated with your work (this can be your given name or a pen name, if preferred)

Due to time constraints, we will have a limited number of presenters. All submissions are due by Wednesday, 19 October at 11:59 p.m.
