Taking Submissions: Human Echos: Aliens Invade History! Contest
January 31, 2014
Deadline: January 31st, 2014
Prize: $10 and read in audio form
What? Oh, right the prompt. See, Aliens are sort of a recent idea. You can probably trace the alien invasion genre back to H. G. Wells and the War of the Worlds, and you could argue the whole flying saucer sighting thing got kicked off with the Great Airship Scare in 1896, both pretty recent on the scale of human civilization. But what if the flying saucers had shown up earlier? How would the fictional aliens of today fare against the Roman Empire or the Genghis Khan’s Mongol army? That’s the idea we want to explore in this month’s flash fiction challenge.
You get a thousand words. Send your entries in to [email protected] with “Aliens Invade History” in the subject-line of your email. We prefer “.doc” attachments.
The winner of the contest will receive ten dollars and have their story produced in audio form to air on the podcast. Good luck and happy writing!
The deadline for this contest is January 31st, 2014.
