Linkdump for competitions & calls for writing

Postby c_nordlander » Tue Aug 16, 2011 6:06 pm

A thread for linking to writing competitions and the like (e.g. magazines wanting short story contributions) so as not to clutter up the rest of the Creative Pen.

Please announce if there's any limitation on participation in the competitions (e.g. "USA only", "for people aged 18-25" etc.) and which language it's in (since most people on this site are English-speakers, English language will be assumed to be default and won't need pointing out), whether it's fanfic or original, etc.

See also the list of Swedish writing competitions. All these are Swedish-language.

OK, kicking this off:

TVTropes writing competition. Presumably you need to have registered. Original fiction. Deadline: 4 October.

The above-mentioned TVTropes original fiction competition is finished, but hot on its tail, a fanfic competition (any fandom!) has started.

Specifics here. Deadline 1 November 2011.

The Micro Award, a prize for flash fiction (stories of 1,000 words or less). The stories need to have been published in the same year, but they count online publishing (in a venue where it can be read by the public) to be publication, so that shouldn't be an issue.

No fees; the winner gets a monetary prize.

Open globally. Submission via email is possible.
