Holiday Horrors

We are delighted to announce that we are hosting a holiday season flash fiction contest.

The holidays are a time of celebration with family and friends. It is also a time ripe for horror: Krampus, zombie elves, creepy uncles, maniacs in Santa suits. We want the scariest fiction you can write that is set around a celebratory holiday in and around December.

Your stories aren’t restricted to Christmas tales. Also, holidays with religious connections aren’t required. We encourage you to write a holiday themed story relevant to your experiences. Some good examples include Kwanzaa, Las Posadas, Hanukkah, Diwali, Winter Solstice, and the Chinese New Year.
