Women Hold Up Half the Sky Award

 

Hollywood NOW sponsors the annual “Women Hold Up Half the Sky Award,” a writing prize for feminist themed original short science fiction. Its goal is to celebrate and encourage the feminist writers of the future. This prize is part of the annual Roswell Award competition, which culminates each May with celebrity guest readings at LitFest Pasadena. It’s presented together with the Pasadena based arts and education non-profit, Light Bringer Project, and Sci-Fest L.A.
