The CSFG/Conflux Short Story competition is back for Conflux 12
We want your stories of 4000 words or under, in any speculative fiction genre, on this year’s theme, which is: red fire monkey.
The competition is open to all Australian residents and members of either the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild or Conflux 12.
Entry is $5, unless you are a member of the CSFG or Conflux 12 or you are aged 16 or under, in which case it is free!
First prize is $200 and a 2017 Conflux 13 membership! Second prize is $50 and a discounted Conflux 13 membership, and third prize is $25 and a discounted Conflux 13 membership.
Stories should be written in English, suitable for a general audience (ie, no gratuitous violence or erotica), and, of course, your own original, unpublished work.
Please submit them in the following format: RTF, double spaced, courier font, with the story title in the top right header.
Make the first page of your document a cover sheet that includes your name, contact details and story title (we’ll remove this before we give it to the judges). YOUR NAME MUST NOT APPEAR ON ANY OF THE OTHER PAGES OF THE STORY.
Get it to us at [email protected] before midnight on 31 July 2016.
