I recently received an email about this very cool fiction writing contest sponsored by Arizona State University. If you enjoy writing stories, consider writing one (or using one that you have already written) that in some way relates to climate issues and send to this contest. The prizes are nice, and winning would be a nice addition to anyone’s resume.
In general, consider submitting to writing opportunities and contests. Investigate who is running the contest and focus on no-fee submissions in most cases. There’s no entrance fee and its sponsored by a prestigious school.
Hello all! I’m writing to share that the Imagination and Climate Futures Initiative at Arizona State University recently launched our third Everything Change global climate fiction writing contest.
We’re looking for short stories of 5000 words or less, across all genres. The first place winner will be awarded $1000, and nine finalists will receive prizes of $100. There is no entry fee, and the contest is open to anyone age 18 or older, anywhere in the world.
The winner and finalists will be published in our third Everything Change digital anthology, which will be free to read and share. The submission deadline is April 15, 2020. Our lead judge is Claire Vaye Watkins, winner of the New York Public Library Young Lions Fiction Award and author of the acclaimed climate fiction novel Gold Fame Citrus.
