The excellent folk at the Wellington Branch of the New Zealand Society of Authors (NZSA) sent us some information about the inaugural Zephyr Short Story Competition. All the details can be found at zephyrstories.com, but in essence it is a short story competition open to NZ residents with open and junior divisions.
Now normally we wouldn’t post this info, it not having a specific sf/f/h connection. But the NZSA people did ask very nicely and it got us thinking about how many genre authors there are out there – just think about how many aspiring authors attended workshops at Geysercon. So spread the word among your networks and get them to support this new competition by sending them some properly excellent speculative fiction short stories.
