Libertarian Short Story Contest: Win $300!

Commentary, Featured

Yours truly (as a member of the Libertarian Fiction Authors Association) is teaming up with Students for Liberty (a massive libertarian student organization) to run the first ever (that I am aware of) Libertarian Short Story Contest.

That’s right!

We’re putting our money where our mouth is, and you can win it! (the money, not the mouth).

1st prize is $300, sponsored membership in the LFA (worth a $60 value) and publication in a special edition of SFL’s arts and culture mag, Ama-Gi.  2nd prize is $125 plus all that, and 3rd prize is $75 plus all that.  All prize money can be paid out in dollars, Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Shire Silver, according to your preferences.

The contest is open to all, entry is free, and the deadline is March 4th.

The contest website can be found here: http://studentsforliberty.org/fictioncontest/

And the prompt is:

Write a short story that illustrates the positive role of freedom in human life.

Whether it’s a galaxy-spanning space epic or an introspective contemporary character piece, we want to see stories that paint the benefits and possibilities of human freedom in sharply compelling brush-strokes.

So get writing!

Powerline Contest: Win $100,000

Commentary, Featured

Do you want to advance the cause of liberty through art?

Do you also want to win $100,000?

Now, thanks to the good folks over at the Power Line blog, and the Freedom Club, you can do both!

John Hinderaker recently announced the Power Line contest: a $100,000 prize to the individual or group of individuals that can best dramatize the federal debt crisis.  According to the contest’s website anyone can enter (including corporations and advertising entities) and entries can be anything, from screenplays and videos, to Powerpoint presentations and essays.


The deadline is July 15, so get cracking!  We know here at AGL we will be working hard on an interpretive dance to illustrate the folly of our politicians and their inability to deal with the looming debt crisis.
