:star: THEME :star:

:bulletgreen: Write a short fictional story about a Secret Santa event happening during Christmas/winter season, or something to do with what you interpret 'secret santa' as. That's all. Everything else is up to your imagination! This can be fan fiction, original, collaborative, slice of life, supernatural, fantasy, science fiction, romance, horror, homosexual, etc. Whatever genre works.

:bulletgreen: If you are not a writer, I will allow you, the artist/photographer, to collaborate with a poet to make some sort of visual art that includes a message/story/poem/lyrics in or on it. Comics/mangas are allowed. However, please do not use others' art/stories/poems/lyrics unless you have permission. The prize distributions will be left up to the collaborators to work out among themselves.

:bulletblue: Winning entries will be based on English accuracy, originality, story, and creativity. Horrible grammar, spelling, and punctuation lyk di's plz is unacceptable!

CATEGORIES: (1) Visual Art Story/Poem  ~  (2) Short Story

:star: JUDGES :star:

:iconstarija: :iconcrazedbunny-26857: & the active admins of :iconfiction-writers: (:iconfackio-zally:)

Read This by DarkQasim

:star: RULES :star:


:bulletred: The theme "secret santa" can be mentioned as little or a lot as you want. No, your entry does not have to contain the word 'santa' in it, but it must fit with the theme somehow. Rate your work as mature if needed.

:bulletred: Please join the group :iconfiction-writers:
(maybe Kakikotoba or Literature-Anonymous as well, if you wish)
so that you can enter your entries into the SECRET SANTA CONTEST folder! If you do not wish to remain in the group after the contest is over, you may leave, but I hope the writers won't. Stay in the group until the contest results are announced.

:bulletred: At least no more than 6,000 words! No minimum either, but don't just put 1 word or letter.

:bulletred: In your deviation's description, mention that it is for my contest and link/thumb back to my journal.

:bulletred: 1 entry from each person(s) per category (YOU MAY ENTER BOTH A POEM AND STORY)

:bulletred: You may still enter if you donate prizes.

:bulletred:  If you have questions or comments, comment or note me.

:bulletblue: The original journal is here: fav.me/d5i5ovm (It may hold questions and answers you're curious about.)

:bulletblue: Join or help promote our groups...

How exciting! :eager: I'm really happy that you accept fan fiction too. That's my main genre. ;) I've applied to join the group and will try to get a piece in for this.
