Up to 3000 words. £10 per Submission. This is our 3rd Christmas competition. They are always great fun to judge and this year will be no exception as we read the parodied work of your favourite authors. Any Genre is acceptable, so feel free to write a Christmas Horror, Romance or even Comic Fantasy. Who ever you love to read. See our link below for more details.

There will be 12 ‘First Place’ prizes and each of the winning entries will receive £100 and publication in a Christmas Anthology to be released for Christmas 2020. ’12 Christmas Tidings’ will be available as both eBook and print.
