Anybody here a winner?
This is a follow-up to the post in fall announcing the competition, which is open to entries from around the world. The first prize is $500 dollars, which is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, and the judges vary from year to year, but are always well-respected sf and fantasy authors. So you can get some meaningful feedback as well.
The contest is designed to foster new writers on the one hand, and to raise the profile of the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy on the other. The Merril Collection is in Toronto, and is one of the largest science fiction collections in the world
