Christmas story deadline is Dec. 15

The Times-Courier is looking for original writing for its annual Christmas story contest. The deadline for submissions has been set for Friday, Dec. 15, at 5 p.m.

The first-, second- and third-place stories will be published, and as many others as space allows, in the Dec. 20 edition of the newspaper.

The first- second- and third-place winners will receive a one-year subscription to the Times-Courier. Entries should be 500 words or less and typewritten, if possible. Artwork may be submitted with stories, but it will not be judged as part of the contest.

Stories can be submitted via email to or brought in on a thumb drive, or they can be mailed to: Times-Courier, P.O. Box 1076, Ellijay, GA 30540.

You can also drop them by our office at 47 River St. Please include your name, address and phone number with all entries.
