SpecFicNZ Novel Manuscript Contest

Competition results

SpecFicNZ and Steam Press are very pleased to announce the winners of the 2012 novel manuscript contest. These are:

  1. Darian Smith, Agents of Kalanon
  2. V.O. Blum, DownMind
  3. Yvonne Eve Walus, MIL in the Fridge
There were 16 entries, and the standard was excellent – the selection of the top manuscripts was far more to do with the judge’s genre preferences than the quality of the writing, as this was great across the board. All entrants should have received an email back from Stephen Minchin with some general comments, but if you haven’t please do get in touch.
Keep up the good work, and get those manuscripts out to publishers ASAP.
