FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Washington (DC) Science Fiction Association (WSFA) is pleased to announce that the submission period for the 2021 WSFA Small Press Award is now open and will close on March 31, 2021.
The WSFA Small Press Award honors the efforts of small press publishers in providing a critical venue for short fiction in the area of speculative fiction. The award showcases the best original short fiction published by small presses in the previous year (2020). An unusual feature of the selection process is that all voting is done with the identity of the author (and publisher) hidden so that the final choice is based solely on the quality of the story.
The winner is chosen by the members of the Washington Science Fiction Association and presented at their annual convention, Capclave (www.capclave.org), held on October 1-3, 2021.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
