Holiday Story

For our Holiday Story Contest we are looking for stories that somehow capture the fun, spirit, excitement, frustration or joy of the holiday season. Stories should be holiday oriented (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa). Share your experiences (good or bad) during this time of the year. Fiction and non-fiction entries welcomed. There must be a clear holiday theme. But creative approaches are welcomed. The story should clearly be holiday oriented but writers are free to be creative when reaching that goal.

One entry per person. New entries only. No poetry. Maximum Length 7,000 words. Recommended length 2,000 - 3,500 words

The winners will be selected by the Contest Committee. A winner will be announced approximately one to two weeks after the deadline passes. The decision is final.

The winner takes away a $100 cash prize. All writers will receive feedback for their submission.

Deadline: Thursday, December 25, 2008 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
