AUSTRALIAN SHADOWS AWARDS NOW OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS
New Website and Subscription Drive for Midnight Echo!
Midnight Echo, the AHWA’s official magazine, now has a new website, a new subscription service and new payment rates for fiction, poetry, non-fiction and artwork
To celebrate ME’s ‘re-launch,’ we’re holding a subscription drive across the month of October; anyone who subscribes to one of our subscription options between now and Halloween will go into the draw to win the following:
- First Prize: $200 in cold hard cash!
- Second Prize: $50 prize pack from Black House Comics, a copy of Macabre; A Journey through Australia’s Darkest Fears, edited by Angela Challis and Marty Young, plus Australian Hauntings, edited by James Doig, and a signed copy of White Tiger by best-selling author Kylie Chan.
- Third Prize: a signed copy of This Green Hell by Greig Beck, plus Australian Hauntings, edited by James Doig, and a voucher to the value of $75 for use at Cohesion Editing and Proofreading.
Thanks to Tasmaniac Publications, we also have copies of Bone Marrow Stew by Tim Curran, and Concrete Jungle by Brett McBean, to give away, plus there are more copies of Macabre; A Journey through Australia’s Darkest Fears, Australian Hauntings, as well as AHWA merchandise to the value of $60!
We need to reach 100 (or more) subscribers to be able to hold this draw, so spread the word! Let your friends know. Help Midnight Echo take you backstage to the midnight show. Plus, the more subscribers we get, the better we can pay our contributors. We’ve recently doubled the payment rates from 1c/word to 2c/word, but our aim is to be able to offer 5c/word.
We’ll post regular updates to let you know how close we’re getting to our target.
In the meantime, why not have a look around the new website, check out the details for Issue 6, coming this November, and let us know what you think.
