SPECULATIVE LITERATURE FOUNDATION ACCEPTING NOMINATIONS FOR FOUNTAIN AWARD
The Speculative Literature Foundation is accepting nominations for the second annual Fountain Award, with a prize of $1000 given to a short story of exceptional literary quality. The Fountain Award will be judged by a select jury, and chosen from work nominated by magazine and anthology editors. Non-genre publications are encouraged to nominate material. Each publication may nominate up to three stories for inclusion, from work published in the previous calendar year (2004); nominations must be received by February 1st, 2005. The winner will be announced in mid-May of 2005.
The award is intended for short fiction; any story submitted should contain some form of speculative element. Possible genres include (but are not limited to): magical realism, slipstream, science fiction, fantasy, fable, modern folk and fairy tales, cyberpunk, ghost stories, alternate history, interstitial, etc. If an editor is not certain whether a particular piece will qualify, they should feel free to submit it in any case; the determination of whether it is appropriate will be decided by that year's jury.
