Fingerprints in Frost

Submissions will open for Fingerprints in Frost in spring or summer 2024 and close in October 2024. More information to come soon, but here are a few details:

  • We’re hoping to publish this collection in March of 2025.
  • The word count range will be 5,000-10,000 words.
  • The short stories should be Christian fiction and feature themes of family (particularly parenthood), embracing messiness and reality (whatever that may look like), and homemaking.
  • The story should include frost and cold weather at some point in the story, providing the opportunity for fingerprints in frost. However, a literal description of fingerprints in frost is not required.
  • Setting is unimportant—we welcome stories set in any country, state, era, etc. However, at present, we would like to avoid speculative fiction with the exception of “Kingdom Adventure” (non-magical fantasy).
  • As always, the stories must adhere to our statement of faith and content guidelines.
