What they want:
* Open to Australian writers only.
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, prawns sizzling in pepper and oil, the hot murmur of brandy deep in your stomach, sunburnt cheeks after a backyard Boxing Day cricket match, the fiery red of St Nick’s velvet cloak, and the flaming eyes of his devil counterpart…Krampus.
This Christmas, take a walk on the wild side. Swap merry for scary, and get inspired by the chain-dragging, cloven-footed, birch-rod-wielding Alpine myth of Krampus, the Christmas monster who punishes all the children who end up on the naughty list.
We’re looking for Christmas-themed flash fiction inspired by the Krampus myth. Twelve stories, accompanied by six illustrations by artists including Terry Whidborne and Simon Cottee, will be made into sets of ‘Krampus Crackers’, to be distributed in various hot locations around Brisbane this Christmas.
Deadline: September 5, 2014
