Group-Sponsored Gifts Given and Received Contest
|Deadline:||Jan 7, 2015|
A youthful spirit feels in extremes and can greet the Holidays with ebullience or desolation. Capture that spirit in a YA story of 3,000 words or less, using as inspiration the acts of giving and receiving. While the theme is Holiday inspired, entries need not center around Holiday gifts.
