Enter odd, strange and downright peculiar short seasonal fiction

Stories may be up to 350 words, and could be genre stories (ie horror, crime, bizarro) or plain off-kilter, but must relate to Christmas or another winter holiday, ie Yule, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Hannukah. 'Evil Santa' stories are not really encouraged because they made up such a large proportion of last year's entries.

The winning story gets $50 and the runner up $25. Winners and honorable mentions will be published online and read aloud on a podcast.

Entering writers can make an optional donation of $3.

The closing date is 2 November.
