        The Twelfth Annual
        PARSEC Science Fiction and Fantasy
        Short Story Contest
        http://www.parsec-sff.org/confluence/contest.html

        Prizes and eligibility: The contest is open to non-professional
        writers (those who have not met eligibility requirements for SFWA or
        equivalent). Previous multiple winners and current contest
        coordinators are also ineligible. The best story which relates to and
        features the contest theme will be published in the Confluence 2007
        program book, and the author awarded the first prize of $200. At the
        discretion of the judges a second and third prize in the amounts of
        $100 and $50 may be awarded, with possible publication in a PARSEC INK
        publication (Triangulation 2007). Submission to the contest implies
        consent for publication, but all rights revert immediately to the
        authors upon publication. The coordinators will screen the entries,
        and the best submissions will go on to our panel of three Judges.
        Decisions of the judges and coordinators in all these matters are
        final. There is NO entry fee.

        Judges: Holly Lisle, author of several fantasy series, high fantasy
        and contemporary (World of Korre, World Gates) and romantic suspense
        novels (Midnight Rain, Last Girl Dancing); Tobias Buckell, author of
        Crystal Rain, and over 30 published short stories; Jim Grimsley,
        recipient of the Academy Award in Literature from the Academy of Arts
        and Letters, the 2000 Lambda Literary Award for his fantasy novel
        Kirith Kirin, author of published short fiction, a playwright and
        teacher.


        Format: Stories must be Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Horror in genre.
        Stories must be original, unpublished, unsold and no more than 3500
        words in length.

        Submit in standard contest format (title and page number on each
        page, but author name only appears on separate cover page; otherwise
        as in any professional submission). Email submissions accepted only
        upon request (see below).

        Include SASE for notification only, as manuscripts will not be
        returned. Incorrect format will make the entry ineligible. Stories
        must relate to the theme.

        Theme: "Fewmets at the End of Time"

        We think this theme is broad and challenging enough to give everyone
        scope for new and interesting stories. Please remember, though, that
        Confluence attracts many families, and the story will be printed in
        the program book. A certain restraint and subtlety is called for. Too
        much explicit gore will definitely count against you.

        Deadline: Entries must be postmarked by April 15, 2007. The results
        are generally in by the end of May and all entrants notified by June
        15th.
        Address: Send entries to:
        Ann Cecil
