The SLC Discovery and Language Exchange Programs are thrilled to announce the launch of our New Suns short fiction contest! Through this endeavor, we call on you to craft stories that imagine a more just future for all. In the words of legendary writer and thinker Octavia Butler, “There is nothing new / under the sun / but there are new suns.” What new suns can you imagine? In what potential futures might all human beings not only survive but thrive?
All submissions will be featured in our digital archive and entered to win one of several stellar prize packages, including an iPad and Apple Pencil! You can see the full prompt and guidelines on our contest webpage.
