Holiday Writing Contest 2008

Holiday Writing Contest 2008 Fall is here, Winter is soon upon us – at least in the northern hemisphere – and the Holidays joyfully draw near. This Holiday season we are hosting a Writing Contest.

We are looking for any seasonal, personal, inspirational, uplifting, touching, motivational, or just plain heart-warming stories, poems, and essays up to 2,500 words that celebrate the Season, including any upcoming Holidays!

But in addition, we thought it would be fun to include any original fictional or non-fictional fairy stories or poems, up to 2,500 words. You know, stories about the little folk that may be hiding in your trees, backing up jolly red suited people, or just out of sight and flitting about the pond – or the ice rink this time of year.

  • First Prize is a $35.00 (US) gift credit to our online store.
  • Second Prize is a $25.00 (US) gift credit to our online store.
  • Third Prize is a $15.00 (US) gift credit to our online store.

Please submit your work through our Online Form. We will publish all thematically appropriate submitted work to our Community Stories area on whisperingtree.net. We retain the right to reject any submitted work deemed not to be appropriate for whisperingtree.net; all judging is done by the whisperingtree.net staff, is anonymous, and all prize decisions are final.
