Group-Sponsored Winter Holiday Gourmet Contest
|Deadline:||Jan 1, 2018|
Writers Who Love Kitchens Wants Your Food! All genres welcome! Your entry needs to graphically feature the preparation and/or eating of delicious food! (Vivid descriptions of food that is not eaten will also work.) We want to explore all the traditions within the Scribophile family, prompting stories about winter holiday foods from all around the world.
The winning entry will pleasure the erogenous zones of the tongue: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami. Bring your family - or leave them at home! Bring your winter feast to our table, to be shared by all. From Asia, to the Middle East, to Europe and Africa, to the Americas and Oceania, to the Fantasy World you've spent years working on! Everyone is invited to join.
Take us on a day trip to the country or city. Bring us to your beach barbecue. Tell us about being stuck in the dorms over winter break, preparing a feast on a shoestring budget. Let us enjoy KFC Christmas dinner in Tokyo. But most of all, bring us the food. We are hungry. Write us an orgasmic feast!
Prize money for this contest is provided by the Scribophile Writing Contest Prize Fund.
