Nerds everywhere rejoice: a new flash fiction writing competition believes in you, wants to tap your collective genius and give you nifty prizes and cash along the way.
Speculate This! is the first ever social writing competition aimed at writers and fans of science fiction, fantasy and horror.
“Crowd sourcing has been used for all kinds of things – from developing smart toasters to determining who should be President,” said contest founder, Luke Peterson.
“We approach this believing that fans know best what makes for great science fiction and fantasy.”
The short story writing contest works like this:
According to Peterson, Speculate This! represents a revolution in speculative fiction.
“We want to see Trekkers and Wookie-lovers duking it out over who can produce the best story. We want to see a battle royale between science fiction and fantasy fiction purists. Most of all, we want to see unpublished authors getting their due.”
Speculate This! will officially launch in March, 2013. Contestants can get a jump on the competition by tuning into the podcast on February 27th.
