Call for Submissions: The Christmas Wars


Recently there were a lot of headlines about Trump bringing “Christmas” back to the White House. A lot of lip service and decorations, not much in the way of merry feelings, which seems to have been the agenda of those yelling “War on Christmas” all along.

Has the War on Christmas taken a cease fire? Has the war been won?

How have you felt ever since the right wing media and pundits first became outraged over “Happy Holidays” and other similar phrases suggesting inclusiveness, tolerance and genuine good will? Are you a soldier in the army of Christmas? Are you a conscientious objector who stays indoors until the holiday is over while you play that one song by The Pogues over and over?

Whatever category you fall into, we’d like your take on this.

Go to our Submittable page. Send us your best poems, short fiction and artwork (definitely artwork!) on the theme of “The Christmas Wars” by Monday, December 18.

We hope to start publishing accepted submissions by December 20. If we get enough good work (and artwork!), we will try to publish it until the end of 2017.

Whether you’re a gun totting elf or a snowflake praying for global warming to put an end to Trump’s uber-white Christmas, send us your work today. Above all, remember to take care of yourselves (and someone else if you can) this holiday season.

The Oddball Staff.
