- At $15 (Canadian dollars) it’s about the cheapest contest around, yet has a $1000 prize.
- The winner and runner-up are offered publication in Pulp Literature alongside our 2017 feature authors!
- Did I mention the $1000 prize? (about $775 USD)
- You’ll ensure you write a finished story by the Friday, September 23rd deadline!
- The dozen or so shortlisted authors will be read by Diana Gabaldon and Jack Whyte, and that in itself is a reward.
- You’ve got good odds. Despite the high award amount, this isn’t a well-known contest. As far as I know, they place no paid advertisements and don’t put listings on free sites. So lucky you for reading this blog post!
- Did I mention the $1000 prize? (No wait, that’s now $800 USD…)
- You’ll be joining forces with a spectacular community of writers. The “Surrey Conference” is known as the friendliest writing conference in North America, for good reason. We highly recommend it! (If you’re considering attending, hurry to sign up! They’ve almost sold out!)
