Witness magazine cover for Online Issue: Dark Holidays (Dark Holidays Zine 2019)Online Issue: Dark Holidays (Dark Holidays Zine 2019)

There are over 30 holidays celebrated by seven of the world’s major religions in these winter months. We asked authors who have submitted to Witness in the past to send us their vision of Dark Holidays in fiction form. These are but a few of the very best we received.

Witness blends the features of a literary and an issue-oriented magazine to highlight the role of the modern writer as witness to their times.
