The Inaugural “Write This Speculative Fiction Novel” Contest!

The Inaugural “Write This Speculative Fiction Novel” Contest!

Realmwalker Publishing Group is now accepting applications for their Inaugural “Write This Speculative Fiction Novel” Contest! The contest takes a story ripped out of today’s headlines and challenges writers from all over the world to write a speculative fiction story based upon it. We look to something potentially horrific to launch this contest in this article about the discovery of “pandoraviruses” being found in the Siberian permafrost.

Topic

Any genre or sub-genre will be accepted, and it does not even have to be Earth upon which this story is developed, BUT the story linked above must be used as the inspiration for the story presented. So the novel could be a mystery, or a hard science sci-fi thriller. It could be a fantasy set in a world threatened with global extinction or a horror novel. Whatever it is, write it!

Organizer

Realmwalker Publishing Group

One lucky winner will be selected to not only have their novel published by Realmwalker Publishing Group in 2016, but they will also earn a $5000 advance for the novel, plus a three book deal worth up to an additional $5000 in advances.
