Ragazine.CC is offering a $1,000.00 prize for the best piece of speculative fiction completed by a person of color in 2013. We will begin accepting electronic (e-mail) entries dated on or after March 20, 2013, and on or before June 20th. The winner will be announced in September; the prize includes publication in Ragazine.CC. Second and third place selections also will be published in the same or subsequent issues of Ragazine.CC.
Editor Joe Weil writes: "I conceived of the contest as a way to bring attention to both an under-served genre of writing (serious, artistic speculative fiction) and an under-served population of writers weilgardenrelated to that genre: speculative writers of color. Many contests are far broader, but this is meant to highlight a type of writing and writers who may not be at all that well known to our readers and who deserve recognition."
