Yep, it’s that time. And what better way to start summer off than with a virtual tour featuring the online science fiction and fantasy publication, MindFlights. One of the especially cool things about tours for webzines is that you never know what to expect when you visit other bloggers. Will they do a site overview? Review a story? Highlight an editor? Or … clue you in about the MindFlights poetry contest?
That’s what I’m focusing on here at Spec Faith, because … well, contests are cool. And poetry contests, especially speculative poetry contests, are not things you come across every day.
You can read all the details in the MindFlights announcement, but here are some key points.
Qualifications: poems centered on the theme Exile; must be original, unpublished works—no reprints.
Two categories, based on length.
Entry fee: None!
Deadline: midnight, June 30, 2008.
So how about you? Think you’d like to try your hand at a poem? or two? or three?
Be sure to check out the complete guidelines. You might also want to read some of the other poetry at MindFlights, such as Mary Jo Rabe’s Martian Weather.
