NoSleep, the corner of Reddit dedicated to sharing scary stories, has picked its winners for its Best of 2012 Writing Contest.
We’ve linked to the four winners below, but you should visit the site for a complete list of second place winners and honorable mentions. Warning: don’t read these stories alone at night!
Here’s more about the NoSleep community: “NoSleep is a place to share your original scary story. The purpose of this sub-reddit is to share stories with and scare the crap out of each other. This is not a place for you to practice your writing skills, or to post creepypasta. Remember, everything is true on NoSleep.”
