Loscon 42 Writing Contest Under Way

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 [email protected].

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.
