SQ Mag is opening their 2016 Story Quest competition, with the theme 'Growth':
What is it that denotes life? What do we yearn for in our favourite narratives, when we see how our favourite character could achieve their dreams if only they might extended themselves, shift and change. We thought it apt to look at stories of growth. It may be literal growth, a coming of age story; a metaphysical or spiritual growth. It may be the stretch, the reach for more. Make it an undeniable story of life.
Prizes are $100 for 1st place, then $50 and $25 for 2nd and 3rd. All winners also receive a regular token SQ paymeny of $15. Entries are open until November 30 so get writing/submitting! They're after short speculative fiction between 1,000 and 5,000 words.
