Hello, writer friends. I wanted to make sure that you were aware of two contests that are currently ongoing. These are both fantastic because they not only hone story writing skills, but part of the prize is publication. If you haven’t already done so, give these some consideration. And, if you would, get the word out to all your friends as well.
The Realm Makers Conference is hosting a short story contest (500-5,000 words) to raise money for their scholarship fund. Stories can be any type of speculative fiction but must include the theme “Escape.”
The top stories will be published into an anthology by Brimstone Fiction. And the winning stories will receive free tuition to the 2016 (or later) Realm Makers Conference.
Entry fee $25. Deadline is April 30.
Splickety’s Havoc magazine is hosting a contest to determine which is better – Sci-Fi or Fantasy. If you’ve never tried your hand at writing flash fiction (a full fledged story under 1000 words), you should give it a shot. I plan to enter. Why not? It’s only 1000 (or less) words!
There are an assortment of prizes including money, publication, and other fun gifts.
Entry fee is $10. Deadline is May 8.
