Sundays are usually a quiet time on the blog, but in honour of the upcoming winter holiday season, we’re trying something new: On Sunday, December 20, we’ll host the first in what will hopefully be a monthly series of Creative Sundays, posting several pieces of short fiction or creative non-fiction around a theme. Obviously, for the inaugural edition, we are seeking holiday-themed stories. Here are the guidelines:
- 1,000 word limit (but try to keep it shorter if you can)
- Submissions should feature Ottawa-Gatineau and the surrounding area in some way
- All submissions will be reviewed by the editorial team and if we receive more than we can publish, editors will make the final selection
- Please send all submissions in a Word document or Google doc to <firstname.lastname@example.org> with the subject line “Creative Sunday”.
Deadline to submit for the December 20 edition is Tuesday, December 15, at 9pm.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with! If this works, we’ll do another one sometime in January.
