Playwriting Competition and Calls for Submission

The Theatreworks 24-hour Playwriting Competition is back:

21-22 July 2012, 1600-1600, Gardens by the Bay. Register and find more information here by 7 July 2012.

LONTAR is a quarterly literary journal of Southeast Asian speculative fiction in English, published and distributed by Math Paper Press in Singapore.” Submission by mid-July to make the first issue, but no deadline really as you can make the next issue.

I discovered another literary journal featuring works from and about Asia, Cha, submission for the next issue is open until 15 June 2012. Submission guidelines here.

An aside – this is a list of “Stories We’ve Seen Too Often” by the magazine Strange Horizons, regarding speculative fiction. Useful advice.

EDIT (17 June): Another speculative fiction call for submission, this one offers monetary rewards for a 3000-6000 word fic from a colonized POV – We See a Different Frontier.
