Life after 2020 – the theme of an international short story competition
What will the future bring? How will we respond to climate change? What does the Higgs-Boson mean to you? Are robots more than vacuum cleaners? Will death be conquered?
I’ve just been contacted by the Australian organisation Stringybark Stories. They are running an international short story competition that gives writers a chance to contemplate events set after 2020.
First Prize – A$350 cash + publication + certificate + e-book + paperback + choice of any Stringybark book (other than the 2014 Times Past Award book)
Second and third prize winners also receive a cash prize and publication. Authors of highly commended stories may also be invited to have their stories published
Entry Fees: A$9.95 Maximum lengh 1500 words and closing date for entries is 13 April 2014.
