The strange little girl is not like the other little girls. She might look like the other girls and act like the other girls, but be very strange at heart – or she might be just plain weird altogether. Sometimes she is a scary little girl, other times a dreamer, always treading the fine line between reality and imagination – or even madness… We want to meet new strange little girls, and read strong and original stories about them. Why is she strange? How is she strange? Who is she when she grows up? Does she end up like the madwoman in the attic, hidden away from the world – or is she an office clerk? A lawyer? A baker of poisoned goods? Think Wednesday Adams, Merricat Blackwood, Alice, Drusilla, Carrie and Amy Pond, to name a few. Of course, your strange little girl might be nothing like them at all – she might not even be the protagonist of your story, but she has to be there, at the center, in all her strange little glory.
