We’ll be featuring the most original and well-written tales of the bunch, so don’t hold back on the chills and thrills, and don’t be afraid to get grotesque.  We want stories that will scare the daylights out of everyone, from your little brothers to your hardcore horror fans.

You can write about anything, so long as the tale takes place on, around, or in the lead-up to Christmas and involves the holiday season and its related festivities! Creepy elves? Check. Psycho Santas? Check. Christmas trees gone crazy? Check. Sinister snow-ins? Have at it!

The best stories will be featured on and considered for adaptation to audio on our official YouTube channel!
