Imagine 2200

Closing date: April 12, 2021

Grist’s solutions lab, Fix, has launched a new climate-fiction short story contest.

Imagine 2200 calls for stories (3,000–5,000 words) that envision the next 180 years of equitable climate progress. What might the world look like in the year 2200, and how did we get there? 

Conjure your wildest dreams for society — all the sweet, sweet justice, resilience, and abundance we could realize — and put those dreams on paper. Literary judges will include authors Adrienne Maree Brown, Kiese Laymon, and Morgan Jerkins. 

The top three contest winners will be awarded $3000, $2000, and $1000 respectively, and nine additional finalists will each receive a $300 honorarium. 

Winners and finalists will be published on Fix’s website and will be celebrated in a public-facing virtual event. 

Join this uprising of imagination, and help turn the page on earth’s next chapter.
