The inaugural Mike Resnick Memorial Award for Short Fiction will open for submissions from January 1 to April 30, 2021. The annual award — sponsored by Galaxy’s Edge, Arc Manor, and Dragon Con — is given to the best unpublished science fiction short story by a new author “who has not had any work (including short stories, novelettes, novellas and novels) published by any of the professional publishers listed by SFWA as an ‘eligible’ publishing venue.” There is no submission fee for the contest.
One first place winner will receive a trophy, $250, and publication in Galaxy’s Edge at the magazine’s current payment rate. Four runners-up will receive $25 and publication on the Galaxy’s Edge website. All five finalists will be honored in an award ceremony during Dragon Con, to be held September 2-6, 2021 in Atlanta GA.
For more information, including the complete rules, see the Arc Manor website.
