December: Christmas AbroadSplickety Magazine Logo - New 2016

Featured Author: Merrie Destefano
Submission Deadline: September 21, 2018

Sub-genres – Travel mishaps, holiday cheer, cultural traditions

It’s any place but home for the holidays. Give us young adult stories that embrace the holiday spirit in faraway lands. What does Christmas look like in high summer when the family goes to visit their grandfather in Australia? Can an army brat find the Christmas spirit on her third overseas base in three years? What happens when an exchange student in Ecuador finds romance under the mistletoe? We want to see compelling characters, evocative settings, and a hearty dose of Christmas magic.
