2006 Short Story Competition



SFFWorld 2006 Short Story Competition

Finally! The folks behind the scenes have burst into action, and another sffworld short story competition has arrived! Entry is open to anyone.

We’re looking for all and any previously unpublished short stories on a speculative fiction theme. To help preserve the sight of the poor souls who have ‘volunteered’ to read all your fab entries, we ask that you keep to a maximum of 3000 words. In order to help preserve their souls, we ask that you steer away from gratuitous violence, or too much erotic content.

Our favourite three stories will be published on the site, with big shiny links letting everyone know where to find them, and telling everyone how great you are. There will also be a prize for the winner.

To enter our fabulous competition, all you have to do is become a member of the ‘Sffworld community’, and then follow the simple guidelines below. Membership and competition entry are both free of charge. To join the community, click here to join our forums, and then click here to finalise your community account. If you’re already a member of our bustling forums then lucky you: just hit the second link. Then just hit the third, huge, unmissable, ‘submit your story’ link at the bottom of the page, and away you go!

Okay - that’s the fun over with. Now the small print:
