Redstone Science Fiction is calling for contest submissions that incorporate the values discussed in the essay The Future Imperfect by Sarah Einstein. What does a world, or space station, or whatever look like when it has been designed to be accessible to everyone and how would people live together there? The submissions should portray disability as a simple fact, not as something to be overcome or something to explain why a character is evil. The submissions should also incorporate the portrayal of disability in a world where universal access is a shared cultural value. The story chosen by Sarah Einstein and our editors will be published in our September issue.
