Welcome to the SantaCLASH! master post, wherein you can find each and every story as they become available. Don’t know what SantaCLASH! is? Read on…
Every writer is wishing for inspiration this Christmas.
But OH NO! Tragedy has struck – Santa’s been on the whiskey again, and now all those little parcels of inspiration have been mixed up and delivered to the wrong people!
In the countdown to Christmas and New Year, we’ll be showcasing the product of this mix-up HERE on The Midnight Type.
Let me break it down for you:-
Over thirty wonderful writers will write wonderful short stories, and we’ll be posting one or two stories a day here on The Midnight Type in a Christmas and New Year countdown. This feature isn’t a chain like The Zombie Project – each writer has free reign to write a Christmas and/or New Year themed story. But here’s the catch – remember those little inspiration parcels? Each writer got the wrong one, meaning they’ll be writing their stories – BUT IN A GENRE THEY’VE NEVER WRITTEN BEFORE.
I’m talking horror writers tackling historical, urban fantasy aficionados taking on chick lit, literary fiction buffs wrestling with high fantasy. There will be sci-fi, thriller, middle grade, young adult, comedy, fairytale, classic, contemporary, romance, dystopian…I could go on.
Want to sample from this our delectable table of Christmas delights? Well, here you go! (And follow the #SantaCLASH hashtag on Twitter to stay updated.)
