UUNN Newswire

FROM:  Sarath V Memorial Library

As part of the Festival! Celebration, the Sarath V Memorial Library is sponsoring two contests:

Storyteller Contest – submit your own original story about jump-space.  It can be serious or  humorous .  It can be standalone or part of a planned serial.  Submissions should be at least 4,000 words.  We’ll be reading and judging each submission and will pick one as our winner.  All stories will be added to the Sarath V Memorial Library’s collection, and the winner of the Storyteller Contest will receive the Newtron’s Choice award, 5 million credits AND an entry in the Library Lottery (see below).

 Library Lottery – submit any story, guide, document, poem or comic that you may have in your possession, that we do not already have in our collection, and you’ll get an entry in our Library Lottery.  The work does not have to be authored by you, but submissions by the author will supersede submissions by another person.  Otherwise if the same item is submitted twice, the first submitter will get the lottery entry.  The winner of the lottery will receive 2 million credits and an EB-3 (engine-booster) artifact.

Submissions  for both contests must be received no later than 115.11.22 to be considered for an award.  They should be sent to librarian@tri-subspace.net.
