Kia ora to all our members and I hope you had a not-too-stressful season of celebrations. 2013 has had a first chance to show some of its colours and as usual, we are all thinking about our plans for the year.
Here at SpecFicNZ we are also busy planning out awesome stuff for you to do. Favourite competitions from previous years are making a reappearance, like the Wily Writers contest and the best Twitter tale. We also have great new items for you such as the Going Global manuscript contest which might just get some of you published internationally, so I hope you’re polishing up those novels.
Our membership continues to grow, and don’t forget to get this year’s subscription up to date by the end of January to be eligible for the Kindle draw – an e-reader loaded with a stack of work by our members. And Au Contraire is coming up in July and I hope to see a lot of you there!
There are some exciting new markets opening up for our kind of fiction: magazines, anthologies, and publishers. This year, let’s do our thing with excellence.
