Call for submissions to the Space Coast Writers Guild's next anthology: "Holidays” !

Perry Como’s 1954 recording of “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays” is a perennial favorite, reflecting our deep-seated urge to return to a simpler time during the hectic holiday season. Happy memories of holidays from years ago tend to center on family, friends, and food. Our modern holiday season begins with Halloween, builds towards Thanksgiving, reaches its feverish peak with Christmas and Chanukah, and ends on New Year’s Eve.
The Space Coast Writers’ Guild’s forthcoming anthology, Holidays, is a collection of stories filled with fond recollections of holidays past and present. Whether it’s ice skating on frozen ponds at Christmas, dressing up in amusing costumes for Halloween, or eating too much turkey at Thanksgiving, Holidays captures the best (and worst) of times.
