The Steampunk Authors' Guild is pleased to announce we have opened the above-referenced contest for submissions! If you have any interest in Steampunk or Jules Vern type science fiction please come and read, review, and/or submit a very short story!
You were once proud of it, but now you see it has so many flaws that no number of revisions could save it. The characterization is weak, the description is empty, the overall style is immature and poorly formed. Don't burn it. Rewrite it. FREE entry!
