Loscon 42 co-chairs Robbie Bourget and Marcia Minsky have announced that the con is holding a Writing Contest for aspiring writers. Entries are being taken now.
There are three categories:
- Youth (6-12)
- Young adult (13-20)
- Adult (21 plus)
Prizes are still being decided.
Bourget and Minsky say:
We are looking for your best fantasy or science fiction between 500 and 1000 words; the youth and young adults may supplement their word count with illustrations (each one worth 50 words). We will be having a professional writer (to be named later) judge this competition.
All submissions must be received by October 31, 2015. Submit your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Loscon 42 takes place November 27-29 at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott. Guests of honor are Jim C. Hines, Bobbi Armbruster, David B. Mattingly, and Theresa MacWillie.
