Mike Resnick (1942–2020) worked with and encouraged new writers, many of whom affectionately refer to themselves as “Mike’s Writer Children.” Mike was passionate about encouraging new talent in science fiction and created Galaxy’s Edge magazine to showcase stories by new writers.
Galaxy’s Edge and Dragon Con are proud to sponsor the Mike Resnick Memorial Award to help continue Mike’s legacy of “paying it forward” and encouraging new writers.
The award will be presented during the Dragon Award ceremonies at Dragon Con.
There will be five finalist judges, including seven-time Hugo winner Lois McMaster Bujold and six-time Nebula winner Nancy Kress.
The winning writer will be awarded a trophy and a cash prize of $250, and the winning story will be published in Galaxy’s Edge magazine. A separate payment (based on Galaxy’s Edge’s prevailing rate) will be made by the magazine for the right to publish the story. This is in addition to the fixed cash prize.
There is no entry fee for the Mike Resnick Memorial Award for Short Fiction. Only unpublished authors are eligible to enter the competition.
