Tis the season, and all that, so I'm spreading the word.
The Spec The Halls contest has resumed after a year's haitus with expanded scope - the winners will be collected in an ebook to be released next year, all proceeds to benefit Heifer International. The first ebook is for sale with selections from prior years' contests.
The rules are simple. Basically, write a story or poem, or create art, about the holiday season. Post it up for all the world to see. Tell the editor where to find it. If the story is particularly grim or explicit, mention that in the email.

Hope to see y'all there.
