A reminder that entries for the newly revamped Norma K Hemming Award close in a fortnight. We invite you to reflect on the work you have published in the past TWO years (the 2018 awards cover all eligible work from 2016 and 2017) with consideration of the guidelines provided at the website, and be sure to enter by the deadline.
The Norma K Hemming Award is designed to recognise excellence in the exploration of themes of race, gender, sexuality, class or disability in a published speculative fiction work.
It is open to entries of short fiction, novellas, novels, edited anthologies, collections, graphic novels and stage plays.
Entry submissions may be digital or print for all submissions.
Two prizes will be given, one for short fiction (up to 17,500 words) and one award for long work (novellas, novels, collections, anthologies, graphic novels and play scripts), with a cash prize and citation awarded.
Nominations are open to all eligible work from 2016 and 2017.
Nominations for the 2018 awards, covering all eligible work published in 2016 and 2017, are now open and will close on January 25, 2018.
