Laaaaast Call, 2017!
This is it! Today is the last day to submit to the 2017 Friends of the Merril Short Story Contest! We’re taking submissions until midnight EST, but I will tell you secret: I won’t officially close the contest until I wake up tomorrow morning. So send those stories in!
I was quieter than usual this year, but I am just thrilled with how the community has picked up my slack! The Toronto community, in particular, has shown up and showed us how vibrant and strong a specfic we have here, how many writers truly appreciate what the Merril has given us over the years. Our submissions from Toronto and area writers are up almost 50%!
But remember, you don’t have to be local, or even Canadian, to submit! We encourage international submissions, pan galactic submissions, interdimensional submissions – we don’t discriminate, just send ’em in!
Best of luck!
