Prose That Blows

Prose That Blows 4 – Winter Wonderland

What’s the best way to keep warm during the winter season?  A blanket and some hot chocolate.  What’s the second-best way to keep warm?  I don’t know, but I’m sure body inflation is involved somehow.


  • Your story must be based on a winter holiday theme and/or tradition.  The holiday can be religious or ethnic (e.g. Christmas, Hannukah, etc.), somewhat bogus yet still somewhat documented (e.g. Festivus; don’t just invent your own damn holiday), New Year’s Eve/Day, or any combination thereof.
  • Your story must not exceed 1,000 words.

All other general rules apply.  Please make sure to review these as they have recently been updated and clarified to clear up some confusion about a couple of things.


The awards up for grabs for this contest are:

  • Best Story
  • Sexiest Story
  • Most Disturbing Story
  • Most Original Story
