    Is there a reason why we have to email you for more info? Because with scant guidelines that you have now, makes it a necessity to get more info. But that's an inconvenience to the writer and not sure I'd want to bother.

    We are looking for short stories with Christmas and what it represents as a theme, i.e. family, memories, giving, grief, unfulfilled expectations, cold weather, anticipating the New Year. We are mostly looking for fiction, however if you have a compelling first person, true life story to tell, please send it along.
    The story can be humorous, romantic (R-rated okay) religious, satire, with characters that are spirits, ghosts, angels, Christ-like figures, the faithful, and nonbelievers (no zombies or vampires, please).
    For example, you can tell a story about Christmas from an atheist’s point of view or from a very, very old person’s perspective. The most celebrated example of a Christmas tale is Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” but to the other extreme the movie “Home Alone” also featured Christmas in all its hilarity. Our rule of thumb is the story doesn’t have to be realistic, but it has to be believable and relatable.
    Story must have a beginning, middle and an ending and the main character or characters must undergo a transformation of some sort, even if the change comes in the form of an epiphany. Story should be no more than 2000 words. Email it to staycalm09@gmail.com. We pay $50 upon acceptance via PayPal.

    Do you accept previously published stories?

    Do we lose copyright if our stories are accepted?

    I emailed in for a few days ago for further details, as requested here, but I haven't had a reply yet. Do you still want stories?
