Event Details

Future Folklore is a speculative fiction contest that imagines a world where equitable climate change initiatives have been set in motion.

We want tales that capture the wildest dreams of your ancestors and the necessary, hopeful reality of the generations to come. This is also a call to practice an emergent genre called Climate Fiction (Cli-Fi), which uses a speculative format to respond to the climate crisis. Whether your tale is set ten years from now, or two hundred, show us how you envision innovating the values, practices and technologies of the past and today.

Stories are judged based on creativity, practicality, and writing strength.

13 winning stories will be selected for cash prizes and publication.
