If you have a short sci-fi or fantasy story ready, or can write one quickly, then you might like to try this competition. The prize is $200. Only non-professional writers may enter (you'll need to check the rules to see what they call non-professional, as criteria for this varies widely)
How's this for a fantasy writing retreat? I spent a few hours there last week. The fantasy part is in the word 'writing' as I went for a walk and drank wine instead. Maybe I can consider it research? You never know when I might want to write about someone very lazy and easily distracted.
