One of the reasons that I love this weekly post is that I get to learn about awesome contests that feel like I really should have already known about, but hadn’t. This is one of them.
The Writers of the future contest is a great one for the deadline phobic, because if you miss the deadline, your work will be put in for the next quarter’s contest. I also love the fact that only unpublished writers are eligible.
Genre- Nowhere is it listed, but since it’s a contest based on L. Ron Hubbard you can probably assume they’re looking for mostly speculative fiction, heavy on the science fiction.
Word Count- 17,00
