About

So, this year’s contest call is perhaps the most open of any so far… all I’m asking of writers is that they show me a hopeful future made better by scientific advancement. Biotech, space travel, deep sea exploration, network technologies, interspecies communication, technologically-enabled abundance… the sort of boon you imagine for humankind doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you show us that there is still hope for tomorrow, and remind us that science is likely to lead the way to that better future.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
