The Yuri’s Night Short Story Contest deadline isMarch 1, 2013.
Human Spaceflight became a reality over 50 years ago with the launch of a bell-shaped capsule called “Vostok 1.” The capsule was carrying Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, who took his place in history as the first human to leave the bounds of Earth and enter outer space.
This year, Yuri’s Night will be co-sponsored with the Greater Ft. Worth Chapter of the Moon Society and the North Texas Speculative Fiction Workshop at the Benbrook Library, Benbrook, TX. Along with snacks, poetry readings, and short story readings, Ken Murphy from NSSNT will bring a movie about Yuri Gagarin.
Part of this year’s celebration is a short story contest. The theme must be about space, space exploration, development, and/or settlement.
Prizes will be awarded April 13, 2013 at the Yuri’s Night celebration at the Benbrook Library, 1065 Mercedes Street, Benbrook Texas 76126
