Payment: $0.20 a word
Now that we’ve terraformed a new home for future fiction, we need you to help us populate it.
Submissions for Terraform are open to the public, and the ask is simple: We’re looking for 2,000 words or fewer—a nice, digestible internet length—of speculative fiction honing in on the tech, science, and future culture topics driving the zeitgeist.
We’re looking especially for nearer-future fiction; think more sentient chat bots or climate-changed dystopias and less far-flung space operas. And we don’t care what form it comes in: Classic-style SF short stories, social media posts from beyond the horizon, fictive data dumps, experimental graphic narratives, and so on. Our baseline rate is $0.20 a word. Remember, we’ll publish one new story every week.
Send submissions to terraform.motherboard (at) gmail.com. We’re looking forward to reading your dispatches from the future.
