Krampus Krackers



Madeleine McDonald's story, Advice from the Heart, is one of the twelve flash fiction stories chosen for Tiny Owl Workshop's Krampus Krackers project. Brisbane in Australia and Leeds in Yorkshire will be the setting for a Christmas package with a difference. Unsuspecting visitors to both cities may find themselves offered a traditional Christmas cracker. However, instead of a tacky plastic toy, these crackers will contain a printed story. Instead of a benign Father Christmas, all stories feature the Krampus, the bogeyman of German tradition who punishes naughty children. A contemporary Krampus, re-imagined by twelve contemporary storytellers.
