We are delighted to announce that we are once again running a short story competition, along with a Twitter-based competition for best 15-word story.
Short story competition
Theme: Alternative Realities
OPEN (age 18 and up): First place will receive a cash prize from the Australian Science Fiction Foundation. Second and third prize are to be confirmed closer to the con date.
JUNIOR (18 and under): There will be a first, second, and third prize, to be confirmed closer to the con date.
To enter the open competition, authors must be either a member or a supporting member of C15, or pay a $20 entry fee. (Email email@example.com if you’re not sure whether or not you’re a member yet!) Entry fees will be payable via TryBooking or direct deposit — that information will be in the next newsletter. Entry to the junior competition is FREE.
Entries must be received by midnight Monday 30th April 2019. Email entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stories must be no more than 3,000 words. A complete list of rules will go up on the Continuum website in the near future.
15 word story competition
It’s back! Write us a speculative fiction story… in exactly 15 words!
Stories are to be submitted via twitter, using the hashtag #con15words. A shortlist will be published in the con book, and a winner will be announced during the convention.
Stories do not need to fit a theme — the word count is the challenge.
