Applications are open through April 15, 2020, for the third annual Everything Change global climate fiction contest. The Imagination and Climate Futures Initiative at Arizona State University—a partnership of the Center for Science and the Imagination and the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing—seeks short stories that help us imagine how humans can live within Earth’s planetary boundaries—at the individual level, yes, but more importantly at the level of organizations, communities, and societies, and at the level of a global human civilization.
Submissions must be 5,000 words or less. All genres of short fiction are welcome.
The first place winner will be awarded $1,000, and nine finalists will receive prizes of $100. There is no entry fee to submit your story. The winner and finalists will be published in the third Everything Change digital anthology, which will be free to read and share.
Learn more, read the prior two anthologies, and submit your story on the Imagination and Climate Futures Initiative website.
