We ran the Calendar last year and it was absolutely fantastic – we had everything from illustrations to recipes and personal anecdotes, and every day revealed an entirely new piece of festive creativity (click here to see what we’re talking about).
As we’re basically looking to recreate the same magic as last year, I’ve copied and pasted what we wrote in last November’s blog post:
“TYC are looking for writers and illustrators to contribute to our advent calendar. During December, we want to present one piece of work each day as a kind of ‘advent gift’ for readers of the blog. Admittedly, it won’t be full of chocolate-y goodness, but looks can be deceiving and we know that you are all more than capable of creating something equally tasty, albeit with less calories.
So basically… If you are an artist who would like to submit a festive drawing, or a writer, who would like to submit a lovely Xmas-y short story/memory/poem/etc. then we would LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear from you (Obviously we will link fully to your site/blog/etc.!)”
So whether it’s creating a Christmas-sy illustration, writing an essay on why you love mince pies, designing your dream Christmas jumper, etc, etc, we want YOU to get involved.
Interested? Drop us a line, let us know what you’d like to do and give us an idea of the date you could submit your work for so we can draw up the calendar schedule. Come on… Get involved!

And here’s THAT advert again (it’s still sob-worthy almost a year later…)
