The Williams Lake Tribune/Weekend Advisor is opening up submissions for its annual Spirit of Christmas Writing Contest.

We want to see your creativity embrace the spirit of the holidays through story — fiction or non-fiction, memories or poems — this Christmas season to be potentially published in our annual Seasons Greetings Christmas publication.

Entries will be judged by Tribune staff in each of three categories: 12 and under, 13 to 18 and 19 and above. Stories must be no more than 1,500 words to be considered, and most adhere to the Christmas Spirit theme with a clear and original storyline. Artwork can also be accompanied with each submission.
