CFS: Christmas Traditions: True Stories of of Holiday

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Christmas Traditions: True Stories of Holiday
Celebration

Send submissions to: Helen Kay Polaski (Szymanski) at
_hkpolaski@yahoo.hkp_ (mailto:hkpolaski@yahoo.com)

Christmas Traditions: True Stories of Holiday Celebration will be
filled with stories that touch the mind as well as the soul as they
take the reader on a magical journey through Christmas—past and
present—while giving the reader ideas for traditions they might be
interested in adapting in the future. Each story will focus on either
a well-known holiday tradition or a unique tradition known only to a
particular family or community, as well as a touching story that
circulates around each individual tradition. (I love traditions and
can't wait to see how your family celebrates Christmas!)

Stories must be first person, true accountings of either shared or
unique traditions celebrated by families, communities, and/or groups
during the Christmas holiday season, and all must be based on strong
individual family/community dynamics, specific geographical location,
and/or different cultures and religion. Approximately 70-80 stories
(700-1,200 words) will be gathered. (When writing your story please
keep in mind that Christmas is the most magical time of the year. I
want to see the magic unfolding on the page before me as I read, and
so do my readers.)

Only stories that have a beginning, middle, and an end will be
considered.

Payment: upon publication, $75 and a copy of the book (for each
accepted story)
Deadline: November 15, 2007

Please include your full name, current address, email address, phone
number, and a 50-word bio.

Thank you,

Helen Kay Polaski (Szymanski)
Editor
