Group-Sponsored First Annual Tasha Mann Award Contest
|Deadline:||Aug 20, 2015|
This is a group-sponsored contest in honor of our friend and fellow Scribber, Tasha Mann, who passed away on June 15, 2015. Tasha used futuristic or alternate worlds in many or her works, and that's the theme of this contest: the members of the Tasha Mann Critique Group want you to tell us a complete story, in 3,000 words or less, where the setting is in either an alternate world, or a futuristic one, or both. All genres are welcome, but the alternate or futuristic world must be a thematic element in the story. Send us your best.
If you'd like to join our group, please come check us out. Also, this year's karma for the prizes was raised totally by our members, but anyone who would like to donate karma toward next year's contest is more than welcome to do so. We aim to have lucrative prize amounts, and would like to see those amounts rise higher and higher each year.
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||90 karma points|
|2nd prize:||30 karma points|
|3rd prize:||20 karma points|
