Fairytalez is proud to announce its new writing competition. This is the fourth writing competition we’ve held and we’re excited to read the new stories in this round! We’ve chosen the time of snow, ice, frost and a chill in the air so this contest’s theme is Best Winter Tale.

The many delicate forms, concealed in summer by luxuriant foliage, were now clearly defined and looked like glittering lacework. A white radiance glistened from every twig. The birches, waving in the wind, looked as full of life as in summer and as wondrously beautiful. Where the sun shone, everything glittered and sparkled as if diamond dust had been strewn about; and the snowy carpet of the earth seemed covered with diamonds from which gleamed countless lights, whiter even than the snow itself.

Winter has inspired many folk tales and fairy tales throughout the years, such asThe Little Match GirlThe Cat on the Dovrefjell, and The Snow Queen so we hope it inspires you as well!
