Entries for The Roswell Award, sponsored by Sci-Fest LA, The Los Angeles Science Fiction One-Act Play Festival, are being taken through January 15, 2016.
The Roswell Award was created to identify, encourage and promote up-and-coming science fiction writing talent, and is given to the winner of Sci-Fest’s short story writing contest for adults. The author of the winning entry will receive a cash prize of $1,000.00.
Entries must be original science fiction short stories (not plays), no longer than 1500 words, by a writer over the age of 18.
Five finalists will have their stories read aloud “by sci-fi celebs” at Sci-Fest during an awards ceremony in May 2016, then posted on the Sci-Fest LA website. Finalists will receive two tickets to attend a Sci-Fest LA play festival evening.
Full details at the website.
