February’s Table of Contents

editorial by Camille Gooderham Campbell

From the Editors

February is the month of love, so share a little love around — hug someone every day this month (in an appropriate and non-creeptastic way, of course), and tell them EDF sent you. Also, Chinese New Year was yesterday, so it’s now the Year of the Horse… we, uh, can’t think of any horse-related activities to suggest, and we sadly don’t have any Lantern Festival stories to offer this month, so we’ll just wish happiness and prosperity to our readers who are celebrating the occasion.

For Readers

For the week of Valentine’s Day (February 10th — 14th), we’ve got a lineup of Valentine tales for you from Sarah Russell, K. A. Mielke, Lee-Ann Khoh, and Madeline Mora-Summonte, capped off on Valentine’s Day itself with “One Last Dozen or So” by Christopher Owen.

If you’re looking for a great book to read or give as a gift, why not have a look at what Every Day Publishing has to offer? Every book sold helps to support EDF.

For Writers

You know the drill — St. Patrick’s Day stories need to be in by February 24th. We’re also ready to see April Fool, Easter, and Passover stories now, but the deadline for those isn’t until March 27th. In general, springtime and Spring Break stories are welcome around this season, and we’re always glad to have stories for your other favourite holidays and festivals too.

Don’t forget that Flash Fiction Chronicles’ String-of-10 SIX writing competition is on now! The deadline is February 4th, so time is short — but so are the stories at a maximum of 250 words — a big challenge when you need to work in at least four of the ten prompt words. Please read the submission instructions carefully: submissions go to FFC for judging, not to EDF!

And now, here’s the story lineup you’ve been waiting for…
