Fantastica invites Australian and New Zealand writers to submit science fiction manuscripts for consideration. Winners will have their manuscript carefully shepherded to publication by an editor and the Fantastica team. They are looking for:
Science fiction, not fantasy. Anything high-tech, low-tech or even no-tech (if you are OK with post-apoc style sci fi?). Stories set on a generation ship, on a futuristic terra firma or on a planet a million light years away.
Manuscripts of 30,000 words or more.
Works that start with a bang, blow our minds and subvert our expectations.
