Short Fiction Romance Competition at SFWG

I have recently published two short stories; Tuning In (self-published) and Last Chance Junction (Kellan Publishing) and was invited to join the Short Fiction Writer’s Guild (SFWG) where members have access to their beta-reading program and writing resources. It’s also a great place to check out articles about short fiction (up to 40,000 words) and hear about new publications by members of SFWG.

I wanted to take the opportunity to promote SFWG’s first ever Romance competition for stories of less than 17,500 words.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Entry Deadline: February 18, 2013.
