Climate Fiction Short Story Contest
Climate Fiction Short Story Contest
First Prize: $1000
Judged by science fiction legend Kim Stanley Robinson
Deadline: January 15, 2016
Learn more and submit your story here.
Climate change is a creeping calamity, ever-present but so gradual and pervasive that it can be tough to grasp. Climate fiction, an emerging subgenre of speculative storytelling, can help us imagine human futures shaped by climate change by breaking though policy debates and obscure jargon with thrilling stories grounded in real science.
ASU’s Imagination and Climate Futures Initiative, in partnership with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is seeking submissions for its Climate Fiction Short Story Contest.
The first place winner will be awarded $1,000, and the top three winners will receive book bundles signed by climate fiction author Paolo Bacigalupi. A collection of the best submissions will be published in a forthcoming online anthology, and considered for publication in the journal Issues in Science and Technology.
There is no entry fee to submit a story, and the submission deadline is January 15, 2016. The contest is open to all ages.
The competition will be judged by science fiction legend Kim Stanley Robinson, New York Times-bestselling author of the Mars Trilogy, 2312, The Years of Rice and Salt, Forty Signs of Rain, and most recently Aurora.

“”VPhD is a great resource for those exploring non-academic jobs. With regular panels on non-academic careers, a very active forum discussing important matters in a very collegial manner and a website full of resources, VPhD makes me feel part of a community. I don’t feel lonely anymore.””
“”The panels are terrific! I could spend the whole day reading them. It makes me feel not so alone in my non-academic job search.””
“”The panel discussions bring in people I would never have found on my own. Hearing about different pathways to an alt-ac career narrated by smart, empathetic and compassionate individuals has been infinitely encouraging when making the difficult transition out of the academy.
