ISFiC WRITERS CONTEST 2019 RULES

==========

Just follow the rules below and send in your story(ies) by September 1, 2019.

==========

ISFiC, Inc. is the parent organization behind Chicagoland’s oldest science fiction convention, Windycon.  “ISFiC” stands for “Illinois Science Fiction in Chicago” and our mission is to promote Science Fiction Fandom and Literacy in Chicago and the Midwest.

To help promote and encourage new authors, we sponsor an annual competition for unpublished writers of science fiction and fantasy.  The award is presented at Windycon and the winning story is printed in the Windycon program book.  The name of the winner and title of the winning story will be added to our list on the ISFiC web site.

The contest was started in 1986, and since then, many winners have gone on to become successful published authors.  We look forward to reading the many submissions from new authors starting out on their writing careers!

If you have any questions about the ISFiC Writers Contest, feel free to email us at writers_contest@windycon.org.
