With KDW's permission, I've been asked to copy and paste the following announcement:
You can win a story critique by Dave Wolverton, author of the Runelords series and dozens of other fantasy and science fiction novels. *Edited* A winner will be drawn from the first 1,500 people to "Like" the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/WritersAndIllustratorsOfTheFuture.
Feedback from such a talented author is invaluable, but the drawing winner's story will not be eligible for the contest.
Pass this on--the drawing does not take place until the page has 1,500 likes. Feel free to "Like" on all your Facebook accounts--mom and grandma can even win and pass the honor on to you. Dave will critique a story of up to 40 pages of standard manuscript format, found at http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html. That's about 10,000 words.
There are more reasons than the drawing to like the page. Orson Scott Card says, "Writers of the Future simply is the best way to launch a career." Neil Gaiman says the Writers of the Future Contest "has a record of nurturing and discovering writers who have gone on to make their mark in the science fiction field."
Top professional authors judge stories by aspiring fantasy and science fiction writers from around the world, handing out cash, a trip to Hollywood, a professional workshop, and publication in the anthology. The industry's leading magazine, Locus, calls that anthology "the best-selling SF anthology series of all time."
Quick FYI...your link to the story submission guidelines picked up the period at the end of your sentence and takes you to a 404 page. You can follow this link http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html or just remove the period at the end of Nick's.
