Sci-Fest LA, The Los Angeles Science Fiction One-Act Play Festival, is accepting submissions for The Roswell Award 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, and written by an adult over the age of 18.
Five finalists will have their stories read aloud 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.
