The Piney Dark is an annual collection of the works of winners of the Stephen F. Austin State University English Department’s Horror Short Story Contest.

About the Contest

The Halloween Horror Writing Contest was created in 2012 to help foster quality horror writing in the SFASU student community.  Since, we’ve expanded to include a short story and flash fiction category for undergraduates and one for graduate students, alumni, or Nacogdoches-area residents, as well as a poetry category open to all of the above.
