Do you have something to say about the future? Can you say it briefly yet artfully? Then you simply must (darling) enter the Future 50 Writing Contest. I'm accepting submissions now until October 10. Stop by the library for a submission form, or find one here.
Remember, your story must be no more than 50 words, including the title. Like so:
Emissary from the Last Frontier
Without fuel, space is not an option. The oceans are too toxic. The mountains have all been mapped, inside and out. Only one place left for explorers, the pit in my backyard. Now accepting applications. Must have experience in geographic triangulation. No boys need apply.
