Just received this news from Tor UK (Pan MacMillan):
WAR OF THE WORDS
Tor and SciFiNow are delighted to announce War of the Words, the search for the next Tor author! We’ll be offering one lucky reader a publishing contract. The competition kicks off in the May issue of SciFiNow; readers will be asked to submit a full synopsis together with the first three chapters by 20th August. A shortlist of six will then be drawn up before the winner is announced in November. Follow the search in each issue or catch up with exclusive news and updates on the SciFiNow website.
To all you aspiring SFF authors out there, you know what to do!;-)
Best of luck to everyone!
