The Friends of the Merril Collection is currently running its 3rd annual Speculative Fiction Short Story Contest. The contest is open to all writers, whether local or international; multi-published or just starting out. Entry is only $5, and there’s some real prize money up for grabs (the prize for first place is $500. Yowsa!).
Entries will be judged by a panel of editors, authors and other notables in the Canadian SFF field. The reading period ends February 15th 2014. If you have a story of 5000 words or less, this could be the contest for you.
