26 Stories of Christmas

Now that December has begun, writers’ organisation 26 Characters has launched their 26 Stories Of Christmas online charity advent calendar.

Raising funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust and Edinburgh-based charity It’s Good To Give, the calendar has paired 26 writers and poets with some charming illustrations created by children affected by illness. Each writer has responded with a seasonal piece of writing – a sestude of exactly 62 words – to accompany the image, with each one being revealed over the course of December.

Edinburgh author Sara Sheridan has been instrumental in organising the initiative, which not only makes it easy to give a seasonal donation to the two charities, but also provides an entertaining and charming way to count down the days to Christmas.

So why not bookmark 26 Stories Of Christmas now and return each day to see & read the treats in store – and of course to spread some festive cheer which can make a real difference to the lives of children and their families.
