Winners of the August Science Fiction Writing Contests
The entries we read for this contest were all exceptional, and it was a hard decision--we were tempted to declare a tie! But alas, the laws of the contest are as immutable as the perpetual shine of Captain Picard's pate, and we had to make a choice. Join us in congratulating the winners of the August contest!

The September Poetry Contest is open!
We've just announced the September Poetry Contest, open to all members. Since it was delayed a little bit this month, the contest will be running until October 7. Read about it at our fancy new contests section and start writing!
New Contests section
The September contest was delayed for a good reason: we were busy putting the finishing touches on our new Contests section. Check it out... you'll be able to see current contests, contest entrants, and all of our past contests and winners in a nicely-organized layout. We have plans to expand it to a listing of contests around the internet, so check back soon.
