Housemate Horror Stories: A Competition!

haunted house

Last week I posted an article on sharing your space as an adult, and it occurred to me that almost everyone who’s ever shared a flat will have a ‘horrible housemate’ anecdote.

And I want to hear them!

If you’ve ever lived with anyone who drove you crazy, crossed universally accepted boundaries or was even just a little cracked, I’d love to share your story on The Fort – and you’d be in with a chance to win a prize.


What do I have to do?


Email me your anecdote at or via private mail at The Fort on Facebook. There’s no word limit – your story can be two sentences or two pages! Obviously some of you might still live with your horrible housemate, so let me know if you need to stay anonymous. Alternatively, let me know if you’d like me to share your Twitter handle or website alongside your story!


What’s in it for me?


I’ll share a selection of the craziest stories in an upcoming article called Housemate Horror Stories. The winning anecdote will win a hardback copy of Tales From the Dead of Night, an anthology of classic creepy tales!


Competition closes March 29th.
