I have a couple of competitions for science fiction writers today.
The Jim Baen Award is for a short story of up to 8,000 words. The prize package includes a trophy, paid publication, books and free entry into the 2018 Space Development Conference.
The James White Award is for short stories up to 6,000 words. Only non prefessional authors may enter. The prize is publication and £200.
