Community Calls to Artists

Imagine 2200, short-story climate fiction contest – Grist
Deadline: April 12, 2021 (11:59pm PST)

Grist’s solutions lab, Fix, is excited to announce the launch of our first-ever, free-entry, climate-fiction short story contest — Imagine 2200: Climate fiction for future ancestors. We’re dipping a toe into the world of fiction, and we want you to join us. Grist’s mission is to make the story of a better world so irresistible, you want it right now. Our award-winning journalism has done that for the past 20 years (if we do say so ourselves). And now, with this contest, we’re embracing the opportunity to look beyond the confines of the present moment and share visions of solutions that haven’t even been dreamt up yet. Imagine 2200 draws inspiration from Afrofuturism, as well as Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, disabled, feminist, and queer futures, and the genres of hopepunk and solarpunk. We especially want to see — and share — stories that center climate solutions from the most impacted communities and bring into focus what a truly just, regenerative future could look like.
