Competition for Short Story Authors with 1000 Award from Arizona State University

Arizona State University is announcing its third contest in 2020 which is considered unprecedented opportunity to reimagine how humans will live on this planet in the future. The beating drum of the climate crisis is a constant reminder that our planet is a closed, limited system and that we’re currently living far beyond its boundaries. This competition is looking for short stories that help in imagining how humans can live within Earth’s planetary boundaries at the individual level and more importantly at the level of organizations, communities, and societies, and at the level of a global human civilization.

The Competition Target:

This competition is looking for short stories that help in imagining how humans can live within Earth’s planetary boundaries at the individual level and more importantly at the level of organizations, communities, and societies, and at the level of a global human civilization. These stories should answer the following questions:-

  1. What would our world look like if we actually respected and lived within planetary boundaries? 
  2. How would we organize our homes, communities, cities, and nations? 
  3. How would we live with and relate to each other at the global level? 
  4. How might politics, culture, relationships, and identities—all of the messiness of human lives—change in a world where we’re grappling seriously with the climate crisis, and perhaps even trying to restore some of the damage we’ve already done to the planet and its ecosystems? 
  5. What kinds of obstacles, conflicts, and transformations will arise during these humongous shifts? 
  6. How can we ensure that a sustainable or even climate-positive future is also a just and equitable one?

Submission Guidelines:

  1. Submit up to one (1) work of short fiction with a maximum length of 5,000 words. 
  2. Your submission must contain no identifying information (including your name) anywhere within the document. 
  3. Submissions that exceed 5,000 words or contain any identifying information about the author will be disqualified.
  4. Submissions must be original work that has not been previously published in print or online. 
  5. While the presence of other languages in the text is acceptable, the majority of the work must be written in English.
  6. Participants must be 18 years or older. U.S. and international submissions are welcome. ASU students and employees are welcome to participate.
