Clockwork Gnome here with a very special Thursday writing prompt. If you know a teen author, you’re going to want to forward this to them.
September 1 – 3rd I’ll be working the floor and panels of Salt Lake City Comiccon, one of the biggest comiccons in the US, and I want to meet YOU! So, Quantum Fairy Tales is sponsoring a scholarship to the event. The only catch is that this contest is only for teens.
(All of the adults are whining out there. I’m sorry. You can still come. We will have lots of swag for you!)
Quantum Fairy Tales has partnered with Teen Author Boot Camp for this event. They have a whole line up of classes and panels just for teen authors! It’s an amazing experience, and kids get a three day pass for only $45 – a great deal for any comiccon nerd – and every gnomie knows how much we love teen writers! So we’re going to sponsor one of you and pay for your three day pass to all of SLC Comiccon and the Teen Author Boot Camp events (all are happening at the Salt Palace).
JUST TELL ME HOW TO WIN!!!
Ok! Ok! First, leave a comment on this post telling us why you love Commicon, then send us (using our form) your flash fiction story of no more than 2k words about someone with a unique super power. The winner will not only receive a free pass to fun and excitement, but also a spot in our fall issue of QFT. Can’t beat that!
If you are a kid, GET WRITING! If you are an adult, TELL A KID!
(p.s. we have been known to pick more than one winner)
FINE PRINT: Contest is open to anyone who is able to provide their own transportation and lodging to the event in Salt Lake City, Utah. You must be a teenager (age 13-19) in order to participate. Winner chosen must register at http://teenauthorbootcamp.com/salt-lake-comic-con-registration/
Contest closes August 25th. You have one week. GO!
Even if you aren’t a teen, or you don’t win, I’d still love to see you at SLC Comiccon. Look for me at the Teen Author Boot Camp booth, or on the panels for both events as Leigh Statham. I’ll be the crazy one in the steampunk attire who is probably lost.
