Bad-Fic Contest Rules

Announcing the Annual Byzarium Bad-Fic Contest!

Submissions are CLOSED!

That’s right, people, we want to see it — the most clichéd, stereotyped, all around bad speculative fiction you have to offer!

The top three stories will be published on the site, and the three winners will receive $10 and a free year’s paid subscription to Byzarium!

Please don’t go over 1500 words and make sure your Subject line reads “TITLE/LAST NAME/Bad-Fic” so we don’t think you’re a real bad writer! Please follow our normal formatting instructions. While we will accept reprints, original work will get preferential treatment. We will accept a total of 3 entries per person. And please, we want to see some bad fiction, but make sure your grammar and spelling are correct!

The deadline for Bad-Fic Contest submissions is February 29th, 2008. Winners will be announced April 3, 2018. Winning submissions will be published in the April 2018 issue of Byzarium.
