The Cinescape Genre Literary Competition, which exists to identify and publicize the next generation of genre writers, will now run through March 31st, 2003.
"The amount of submissions hasn't declined, or even leveled off yet," explains Chip Meyers, CEO of Mania Entertainment, the parent company of CINESCAPE Magazine and CINESCAPE.COM. "We're responding to writers who are asking for time to finish, or to do new drafts of their work. Writing a novel, illustrating a comic book, these aren't quick and easy things to do, so we're more than happy to accommodate the entrants."
Meyers has been impressed with the quality of the entries so far. "We're pleased to find out how much undiscovered talent is out there," says Meyers.
The competition, which follows on the heels of the very successful 2002 Genre Screenplay Competition, is open to all writers of science fiction, fantasy and horror material. The competition is divided into three categories: novels, short stories and comic books.
