Submissions are now open for the Imagine 2200 short story contest. The theme is “Climate fiction for future ancestors.”
The contest is run by Fix, Grist‘s “solutions lab,” and will be judged by authors Adrienne Maree Brown, Morgan Jerkins, and Kiese Laymon. They are seeking entries between 3,000 and 5,000 words “that envision the next 180 years of equitable climate progress.”
First prize is $3,000, second prize $2,000, and third prize $1,000. Nine additional finalists will each receive $300. All winners and finalists will be published on the Grist website. Entry is free, and the deadline is April 12, 2021. For more information, see the contest’s submission portal.
