If you love books so much that you sometimes wish you could shove all your favourite stories into your eyeballs and imagination all at once, then your reading-based wishes have come TRUE. Well, kind of.
An absolute shedload of the top YA authors in the UK are teaming up like some kind of superhero squad, to create an anthology of short stories and poems called I'll Be Home For Christmas.
Not only will you get tons of brand new reading from book babes like Juno Dawson, Holly Bourne, Non Pratt, and Lisa Williamson, but the whole thing's being done to help raise money for homelessness charity, Crisis. HOW GREAT.
Each author involved with the awesome project has been asked to produce an original piece of fiction based on the idea of what home means at Christmas time.
If you want the full list of the names getting involved with the anthology, then expect to see some wonderful writing from: Tom Becker, Holly Bourne, Sita Brahmachari, Melvin Burgess, Katy Cannon, Sarah Crossan, Juno Dawson, Julie Mayhew, Non Pratt, Marcus Sedgwick, Lisa Williamson and Benjamin Zephaniah.
At least £1 of each sale of I'll Be Home For Christmas will be heading straight to the folks at Crisis for their Christmas appeal, while the publishing big wigs at Stripes have promised that it'll be a final donation of at least £10,000.
As if all of that wasn't ace enough, one brand new unpublished author will also be featuring alongside the big UKYA names, as Stripes have also launched a competition to discover shiny new talent - and it could be YOU.
If you fancy getting involved and maybe even having your work added to the anthology – plus appearing at this year's Young Adult Literature Convention - all you've gotta do is submit an original short story on the theme of 'home at Christmas' before April 1st.
