Call for submissions: 2014 Christmas Writing Contest

2014 Christmas WritingYeah, we know, Christmas 2013 hasn’t even happened yet, but at Cedar Fort Publishing & Media, we’re always thinking ahead.

Put on your thinking caps and limber up your fingers, it’s time to give us your best Christmas stories!

Unlike years past, we will award winners in two categories this time around: pamphlets (500 to 5,000 words) and small gift books (10,000 to 25,000 words).

The pamphlet winner will receive a $100 advance, while the small gift book winner will receive a $400 advance. Both winners’ submissions will be published by Cedar Fort in October 2014.

See the graphic for all of the details.

    Can both the pamphlet and small gift book entries be submitted as attachments to an email? I assume that the author’s name should not appear on the entries.
