The James White Award Short Story Competition is accepting entries through Friday, January 20.
The award was established in 2000 and offers non-professional writers the opportunity to have their work published in Interzone, the UK’s leading sf magazine.
It is open to writers of any age and nationality, but it is not open to professional authors. For purposes of the award, a “professional author” is defined as one who is eligible for active membership of the Science Fiction Writers of America – that is a writer with three short story sales to qualifying markets or one novel sale to a qualifying market.
Entries should be previously unpublished stories no longer than 6,000 words, written in English. Stories are judged anonymously, with no names on the manuscripts. Complete submission guidelines are on the award’s Rules page.
The winner will be announced during Innominate, Eastercon 2017 – April 14-17 in Birmingham, UK.
