Earth Day Short Fiction Contest

Per the site:

Sapiens Plurum’s latest literary challenge is to personalize the consequences of climate change so readers feel as well as know them. But stories must offer hope, at least a possibility, for without hope people rarely act. Your job, as author, is to inspire scientists and states-persons around the world to live up to the promise of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Stories that promote the Sapiens Plurum mission will receive higher rankings than others. This does not mean that stories should be saccharine, naive or pollyanna-ish, but they should be heroic, even if the hero or heroine has feet of clay.

Deadline: April 22, 2016
Word count: 1,500-3,000 words
1st prize: $1,000
