Libertarian Fiction Authors and Students for Liberty have teamed up to sponsor a short story contest with cash (yes, cold, hard, wet lucre) and publication as the prizes. Stories can span the universe, tickly the funny bone, or focus on a few characters and serious situations. Fifty-page philosophical monologues at your own risk.Got an itch to write but don't know how to start? Never fear—
What are LFA and SFL looking for in these stories, you ask? And well you should ask.
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.
The deadline for Submissions is March 4, 2014. Stories should be 1,000 words to 10,000 words. Winning entries will be announced on March 19th.
The top prize is $300, free supporting membership for a year in LFA, and publication in SFL's Ama-Gi magazine, and an anthology.
