Library Seasonal Contests

2023 2-Sentence Horror Story Contest (October 2 - October 31)

Congratulations to the winners of the Dr. John Archer Library & Archives 2023 2-Sentence Horror Story Contest! We received 67 entries from students, faculty and staff, of which all were judged by a blind-review panel of library staff. Here are the three lucky winners whose tales impressed our judges: 

Descending from above, they approached me one by one, until sharp, hooked beaks and ripping talons surrounded me. As I stood amongst the flock, a chilling revelation gripped me: their craving was not for the bread I was holding, but for me.
Miranda Peace - Graduate Student - Faculty of Graduate Studies & Research

"I accidentally deleted all my PhD data. There is no second sentence."
Ekin Buyukakten - Graduate Student - Faculty of Kinesiology & Health Studies

I stumbled upon a hidden room in the library, filled with lifelike wax figures. But as I approached, I realized they were all librarians, frozen in terror, with a sign that read, "Silence is your only escape."
Vanshika - Undergraduate Student - Faculty of Kinesiology & Health Studies
