Inkitt Hosts "Echo of Antother World": Free Writing Contest in Honor of Terry Pratchett

Here's a bit o' writing news: is honoring fantasy author Terry Pratchett with a free April writing contest called "Echo of Another World":
"Echo of another world." In honor of the stupendous Terry Pratchett and his classic Discworld novels, we’re asking writers to take us to different worlds with their stories. Pratchett inspired billions of genre writers to expand their minds and their imaginations, and with this contest we’ll be carrying on this tradition.

Fiction in the sci-fi/fantasy genre, up to 15,000 words. Novel excerpts are encourage; fanfiction is not eligible to win. Entry is free! Authors will collect community votes, and the first, second, and third winners will be chosen by the Inkitt staff from the top 10% of entries. 
They don't say to *not* submit sci-fi romance, so I thought any writers out there might be interested! The deadline is 11:59 PST on May 5, 2015.

Joyfully yours,
