Ho! Ho! Holmes!

A Doyle's Rotary Coffin project for December 2020

A short Christmas Holmes story writing event.

We invited anyone to write a short Holmesian Christmas story and send it to DoylesRotaryCoffin@outlook.com by Christmas-Eve-Eve: December 23rd 2020.

We recommended no more than 2500 words, but weren't be strict about it.

Then on Christmas Eve we read the festive Holmes stories and had a vote in which the only option is "That was Christmassy fun" and agreed we are all winners.
