CONTRIBUTE TO AN ANTHOLOGY OF SHORT STORIES ON THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY. ~ DEADLINE FEBRUARY 28. seanocarolan.com #writing #contest

CONTRIBUTE TO AN ANTHOLOGY

In November 1915, Albert Einstein published his revolutionary paper on general relativity, and fundamentally changed the way we think about the world. To celebrate the hundredth anniversary Freight Books are publishing an anthology of short fiction and non-fiction inspired by general relativity, which will be edited by Pippa Goldschmidt and Tania Hershman. ‘I am because you are’ will be published by Freight Books in Autumn 2015. The book will include short story contributions from fourteen different writers, alongside essays by astrophysicists about the impact of general relativity on cosmology, black holes and quantum gravity.

Now, Freight Books wants your short fiction submissions. They are looking for stories inspired by general relativity, three of which will be included in the upcoming anthology. Stories should be written in English, unpublished, and a maximum of 3000 words in length. Although stories must be written in English, writers of any nationality can enter. The closing date for submissions is 28 February 2015.

For more information about submissions visit Freight Books’ website, or email them on info@freightbooks.co.uk.
