Enter the SFL and LFA Short Fiction Contest!

Calling all creative writers in the liberty movement! The Libertarian Fiction Authors Association has teamed up with Students for Liberty for a special short story contest that is free to enter and open to everyone.

Accepted story submissions will be between 1,000 and 10,000 words and consider the following prompt:

“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.”

With $500 in cash prizes up for grabs, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. In addition, winners will also be published in an upcoming edition of Ama-Gi magazine and receive a year of membership with the LFA. The prize breakdown is as follows:

  •  1st place: $300, publication in a special edition of Ama-Gi, and one year of supporting membership in LFA for free (a $60 value)
  • 2nd place: $125, publication in a special edition of Ama-Gi, and one year of supporting membership in LFA for free (a $60 value)
  • 3rd place: $75, publication in a special edition of Ama-Gi, and one year of supporting membership in LFA for free (a $60 value)
  • Up to 7 runners-up will receive publication in a special edition of Ama-Gi, and one year of supporting membership in LFA for free (a $60 value)

The deadline to submit stories is March 4th, 2014, so act now! Contest rules, submission form and list of judge names are available here.
