We’ve just finished a successful Kickstarter that raised $660 from backers. That money will fund prizes for authors who submit the best “visions” (short essays of 800-1,000 words) of how we might (not) adapt to life in a climate-changed world.
Visions are “fictional” because they take place in the future, but they are based on the storyteller’s imagination or practitioner’s knowledge.
Anyone can submit a story or perspective no matter the author’s background, qualifications or job.
There will be four categories of prizes:
- Best story by a storyteller
- Best perspective by a practitioner
- Best story or perspective by an author under 26 years old
- Best story or perspective by an author from an economically-developing country
At the moment, the first/second/third prizes will be $100/$50/$25 in each category. The prize will be higher if we get more donations 🙂
The deadline for submissions is 15 Sep, 2017.

If you’re ready to submit now, then please send your vision, bio and photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
