About the Competition
Where might you be ten years from now, where might humanity be? The Many Planets Fiction Contest is for speculative short stories and narratives of up to 500 words that focus on new discoveries and directions for our civilisation. Characters may be human, animal, technological, or even alien but all scenarios must be based at least a decade from today, looking backwards, forwards, or into other dimensions. The winner will receive a monetary prize, publication, promotion, and a detailed review. Commended entries will also receive feedback. All genres welcome.
- You’ll need to be 18+ by the submission date or enter with written permission of a legal guardian.
