Echoes of Another World: Writing Contest in tribute to Terry Pratchett

The Good Folks at Inkitt are calling for submissions for their April Writing Contest. So get those pencils sharpened and the ink pots filled up - and get writing !!


Spring into another world in April: free sci-fi/fantasy contest in honor of Terry Pratchett!

Inkitt is a free writing platform where authors can get creative and watch their stories grow, and they’re opening their third writing contest for entries this spring. Inkitt is a place for
writers and readers to collaborate, trading feedback and ideas to improve their work. In the
long run, Inkitt’s goal is to help writers get the exposure they deserve and the publishing deals
they want without worrying about the impediments and unfairness of traditional printing and
self- publishing.

Writing Contest - Echo of Another World
Inkitt's April contest is focusing on the sci-fi/fantasy genre. The theme is "Echo of Another
World." In honor the late great Terry Pratchett, they want stories that will take you to another
world the way his novels did: bring you to outer space, to an enchanted castle, to a forest filled
with fairies – anything with fantastical or science-fictiony leanings goes!

Submission Details
All fiction up to 15,000 words is eligible for entry. Novel excerpts are encouraged; fanfiction is
not. The contest begins on April 7th and will close on May 5th . It's free to enter , and you'll
retain all rights to any work submitted. Collect the most community votes to be bumped into
the top 10% of entries, from which the Inkitt staff will choose the winners.

Prizes
Winners will receive Amazon gift cards ($40, $30 and $20). The first place winner will also
get five printed copies of their story, with a custom cover created by Inkitt’s designer!
