WHERE WOULD A SLEEP­OVER with friends or a camp out around the fire be with­out scary ghost sto­ries? This month, we have you, our read­ers, to thank for the com­pi­la­tion of thrilling tales of ghostly en­coun­ters and mis­chief (‘Ghostly Real En­coun­ters’, page 30). I’ve never had the plea­sure of meet­ing a dis­grun­tled spirit, but af­ter read­ing th­ese sto­ries of first-hand ex­pe­ri­ences with ghosts, I have no doubt about their au­then­tic­ity.

A huge thank you to everyone who sent us a sub­mis­sion for this story. Well-writ­ten and com­pelling ex­pe­ri­ences like th­ese make our mag­a­zine so read­able. That’s why, this month, we’re launch­ing a pro­gramme for read­ers that el­e­vates you from reader to Field Edi­tor. Our Field Ed­i­tors are ac­tive read­ers who like to par­tic­i­pate in the mag­a­zine, such as those peo­ple whose sto­ries ap­pear in My Story, Kind­ness of Strangers and Smart An­i­mals. We’re look­ing for Field Ed­i­tors to share their sto­ries and tell us about amaz­ing peo­ple and events in their com­mu­nity. Go to page 9 for de­tails.

We’re also call­ing for sub­mis­sions for our sixth an­nual 100-Word Story com­pe­ti­tion. De­tails are on page 126.
