British publisher Myriad Editions is looking for “a first graphic novel in progress, with the winner working with Myriad to complete the title.”

Entrants are asked to submit a one-page synopsis and between 15-30 pages of a graphic work in progress.

Deadline for the contest is October 1st. Judges include the awesome Bryan Talbot! The winner will be announced at the First Fictions Festival in January 2012. The novel would be considered for publication by Myriad in 2012/13. Details here.


To promote the book “The Astounding, the Amazing, and the Unknown,” by Paul Malmont, publisher Simon & Schuster is holding a science fiction short story writing contest. The winner’s piece will be published in the book.

Finish the story begun by one of the characters in the new novel. Start your version with “The robot felt…” Finish with “In the end, the robot felt nothing. He wasn’t programmed to.” The up-to-2000 words in between are all yours…The top five finalists, selected by online voting, will be judged by the incredible Patton Oswalt, lit-agent Susan Golomb, and R/GA agency Creative Director, Dan Harvey and Malmont.

Contest ends July 4th. Detail can be found here.

    That’s a tough prompt. It points pretty inexorably to one kind of story, so it’ll be hard to stand out.
