Markets For Writers

This week’s market is The Aeon Award short fiction contest. It describes itself as ‘a prestigious fiction writing competition for short stories in any speculative fiction genre, i.e. fantasy, science fiction, horror or anything in-between or unclassifiable’. 

In its 11th year, the contest runs from 1st January to November 30th so you have plenty of time to work on your story. There are four rounds, so take a look at the rules for further information on this. Unpublished stories of up to 10,000 words are accepted. 

The prizes are as follows

First Prize: €1000
Second Prize: €200
Third Prize: €100

The top three stories will all be published in Albedo One, Ireland’s magazine of science fiction, fantasy and horror.
