Markets For Writers

Fancy trying something a bit different? Then why not enter the Weird Christmas Flash Fiction Contest? The closing date is 2nd November 2019.

It should be weird or strange or odd. It can be “Haha!” weird or “Oh, Jesus, no!” weird. It can be genre (sf, fantasy, horror/weird, bizarro, etc.) or it can just be off-kilter. Sentimental is fine, but it better be sentimental in a way that leaves me feeling…uncomfortable. As long as it’s something about the holidays we aren’t expecting, it fits.

It must be related to any winter holiday (Christmas, Hannukha, Kwanza, solstice celebrations, “Yule,” etc.). You can include other holidays like Halloween or Easter, but it has to still have some strong connection to the winter season’s celebrations.’


1st: $50

2nd: $25

Word limit: 350 words

Visit the website for more information. There’s no mention of an entry fee.

    Thanks Esther. The idea of a weird Christmas is appealing 🙂 . BTW loved your novel writing tips in the November Writing Magazine, all very sensible solutions and fantastic timing for me as I’m about to embark on another first draft!
