Sign in: Staff/Students
As part of this year’s Open House festival we’re celebrating the past, present and future of Science Fiction with a special event showcasing the University’s collection of science fiction works and a student writing competition.
At the event ‘Into the unknown: celebrating the past, present and future of science fiction’, which takes place on Tuesday 24 March, students will be able to view some of the more notable items from the University’s science fiction collection, with guidance from the current Science Fiction Collections Librarian, Phoenix Alexander.
Find out more about this event and book your tickets here.
All students are also invited to enter a ‘flash fiction’ science fiction writing competition to be in with the chance of winning £100 Blackwell’s gift voucher!
The judging panel are looking for short science fiction stories of up to 500 words in length, and are defining ‘science fiction’ fairly loosely; any story with a speculative element will be considered.
To enter please send your story, which should be 500 words or less, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions should be sent in the body of the email, preceded by the name and contact details of the author, and an optional brief bio (no more than three lines). The subject line of the email should read SUBMISSION: [title].
You have until Friday 13 March 2020 to enter and the winner will be announced at the ‘Into the Unknown’ event on 24 March (see above).
Full terms and conditions are available on our webpages.
