FenCon and the Dallas Future Society are proud to present our annual short story contest. We’re looking for a science fiction or fantasy story on any topic. This contest is open to all amateur writers, defined as anyone who has not sold a work of fiction of any length to any professional publication before July 10, 2015. Entries must be science fiction or fantasy, less than 5,000 words long and the original work of the person submitting them. No “fanfic” or shared-worlds fiction.
