The full set of rules can be found here. http://rwimagiccontests.wordpress.com/rwi-contests/2012-more-than-magic-rules-information/
Lesbians, Gays, Bi, and Transgender people are a reality in todays world. Discrimination against any group is still discrimination, even in fiction contest. When emailed, the contest organizers replied that they were "uncomfortable" with same sex relationships.
Same sex couples are entitled to be represented in fiction as much as heterosexual couples. Denying authors the chance to enter contests because of the sexual preference of their characters is wrong. Please sign this petition to encourage RWA include books in competitions that feature same sex couples.
