Submission Call: Misfit Holidays

103This season Queen Mob’s Teahouse is looking for holiday-related (themed, inspired, tinged) Misfit Documents that don’t come from the usual cookie cutter.

Don’t let us forget the true reason for the season.

Tell us what you’re dreaming of.

Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Saturnalia, Winter Solstice, New Years, Chinese New Year, Festivus, Vestival, Jesus, Santa, Green Man, Grinch, Krampus, Scrooge, elves, reindeer, snowpeople, snowflakes, sleigh bells, dreidels, tinsel, jingles, drummer boys, cookies, latkas, pies, lights, trees, candles, angels, stars, druids, chocolate coins, mistletoe, greetings, office parties, potlucks, champagne, mangers, hangovers, family, gift wrap, shopping, consumerism, joy, love, annoyance, avoidance, arguments, loathing, loneliness, dread, stress, depression, you name it. It’s all good. Or god awful, depending on your perspective.

A misfit document is a text that doesn’t easily fit into any genre or category. It’s not quite a poem or short story or novel excerpt or essay. Or if it is one of those things, it doesn’t quite qualify as “literary” or sci-fi or mystery or memoir or whatever. Or maybe it’s all of those things and more.

Send your holiday misfit documents to Reb Livingston at with a brief bio (1-3 sentences).
