Libertarian Short Story Contest: Win $300!
UPDATE: This contest is over, but you can see the the winners listed at the LFA site, and you can read the winning short stories, plus seven runners up, in the free collection, “Imagining Liberty”: part of the free libertarian fiction megapack here.
Yours truly (as a member of the Libertarian Fiction Authors Association) is teaming up with Students for Liberty (a massive libertarian student organization) to run the first ever (that I am aware of) Libertarian Short Story Contest.
We’re putting our money where our mouth is, and you can win it! (the money, not the mouth).
1st prize is $300, sponsored membership in the LFA (worth a $60 value) and publication in a special edition of SFL’s arts and culture mag, Ama-Gi. 2nd prize is $125 plus all that, and 3rd prize is $75 plus all that. All prize money can be paid out in dollars, Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Shire Silver, according to your preferences.
The contest is open to all, entry is free, and the deadline is March 4th, 2014.
The contest website can be found here: http://studentsforliberty.org/fictioncontest/
And the prompt is:
Write a short story that illustrates the positive role of freedom in human life.
Whether it’s a galaxy-spanning space epic or an introspective contemporary character piece, we want to see stories that paint the benefits and possibilities of human freedom in sharply compelling brush-strokes.
So get writing!
