Futurescapes Writing Contest

Sundance UT
Phone: 801.863.8899

FutureScapes is an annual writing competition that asks writers to envision a particular future, and tell us its story. We could run projections and publish reports, but there’s a reason why Oscar Wilde didn’t say, “Life imitates empirical studies.” We want to help writers of excellent potential find their voice while shaping tomorrow.

Open to works of short fiction up to 8,000 words, written in accordance with this year’s theme.

Professional authors are not eligible to enter the contest.

  • Submission Instructions/Form

  • Cost to Enter: First entry free, additional entries $24

  • Submission Deadline: Oct 13, 2017

  • First Prize: $2000

  • Other: Five runners-up prizes of $500
