We are very happy to announce that all of the stories submitted to this year's Christmas Short Story Event are ow live! So get busy reading.

It seems that The Story Lower with the help of Jeff P. has revived an old Fort Family Tradition with their version of Twas The Night Before Christmas, it is a bit different from the original, but still fun to read.

Happy reading,

Hello Authors, Writers, Readers, Those Thinking About Writing,

Due to your overwhelming requests, the Big Guy has decided to add another Theme to this Year's Christmas Short Story Event:

The New Theme is Christmas At Denny's® or A Denny's® Christmas, either one will work.

All the guidelines are still the same, so sharpen your pencils and fill your ink bottles, times awasting.

Don't forget, you don't need to be a hosted author to submit a story, so if you have been thing about writing a story, come and join the fun.
