Teen Science Fiction Writing Contest

This Contest is now Closed.

Winners will be announced on April 3rd.

Fledgling writers often need encouragement. They’re told time and time again, “Being a professional writer is a nice dream, but what are you going to do for a day job?” It is true that getting published is difficult and trying to make money by indie-publishing is a risky proposition. That does not mean that you should give up writing. In fact, if it is in your blood, you won't be able to quit.

So in the hopes of inspiring some young authors to keep writing, I am offering a $40 prize to the first place winner of my Teen Science Fiction Writing Competition. Second and third place winners, will receive $30 and $20 respectively. Their short stories will also be featured on my R.I. Partridge website for one year. I hope this will encourage teen authors to take a chance and submit their writing. After all, you’ll can't get professionally published if you never submit your work.  

Short stories must be submitted between December 15th and February 28th.
