Calling all writers
We are delighted to announce a new call for entries to the Quantum Shorts flash fiction competition! We seek stories up to 1000 words long that take inspiration from the mind-blowing world of quantum physics.
“In these days of quantum computers and quantum satellites, even the news can read like sci-fi. We invite writers to explore behind the headlines and tell stories with emotion and imagination,” says judge and quantum physicist Artur Ekert.
To add a further challenge: stories must include the phrase “things used to be so simple”, taken from the winning story of our previous fiction call. Check the competition's full rules, get inspiration from our resources, then submit your stories here. The competition is free to enter and offers prizes up to US$1500.
