Deadline: July 1st, 2022
Theme: Fantasy, scifi, and horror stories set in winter where a tree plays an important role and are creepy
In winter, there’s a stillness – a silence. As wet snowflakes fall, sounds are muffled. A hush lingers in the air. Bare trees reach upward from the frozen ground, grasping with their spindly branches. Swaying in the frigid breeze, brittle bark creaks and moans as the trees whisper ancient secrets to one another. Sentries, standing in the stillness. Watching. Learning new stories to share with each other long after we have gone.
This winter, we want to celebrate these majestic beings and what happens when the stillness is disturbed.
