Wil Wheaton, John Scalzi and Subterranean Press Sponsor Fan Fiction Contest to Benefit the Lupus Alliance of America
For the benefit of the Lupus Alliance of America, John Scalzi, Wil Wheaton and Subterranean Press are running a fan fiction contest, in which contestants write a 400 to 2,000 word story describing the picture above. Any form of fan fiction is acceptable except slash. The winner of the contest will be paid for their story (10 cents a word), win a prize pack of books from Subterranean Press, and will have their story published in a special electronic chapbook featuring stories about the painting, written by Scalzi, Wheaton, Catherynne Valente and Patrick Rothfuss, to be published later this year, with profits to benefit the Lupus Foundation of America. E-mail the stories with the text in the e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm Eastern, June 30, 2010. One entry per person.
Check out Scalzi’s post for the fine print.
