Sci-Fi short story writing competition - Deadline 5pm on Friday 21st November
HarperVoyager and the BFI are today launching a Sci-Fi short story writing competition. We are looking for stories of up to 5,000 words. We are looking for a short story that reflects one or several of the themes:
Tomorrow’s World – from post-apocalyptic wastelands to megacities to far-flung dystopia – best described by Ray Bradbury as ‘sociological studies of the future’
Altered States – the science fiction of ‘inner space’ mad scientists, mutants, man-machines and mind-bending trips – what points us towards the fragile and untrustworthy thing that is consciousness.
Contact! – time to explore life from all corners of the universe and across multiple dimensions.
You do not need a literary agent to enter. Terms & Conditions do apply and you can find them here.
You will need to enter by 5pm on Friday 21st November by email BFIVoyager@harpercollins.co.uk
Your short story will be judged by HarperVoyager’s editorial director Natasha Bardon, one other TBC
The winner will be announced at an event at the beginning of December at the BFI Southbank and the prize will be your short story being published by HarperVoyager as a free ebook and widely available through HarperVoyager and BFI’s marketing channels. You will also receive 2 pairs of tickets to the BFI film season (subject to availability) and a special goody bag of HarperVoyager books.
