$1,800 Short Story Contest from Sapiens Plurum

Sapiens Plurum is now hosting their annual Short Fiction Contest. This year’s theme is “Healthy Together: Innovations for One Health”. They open the contest each year on Earth Day.

This year, submissions are open until May 31, 2021.

The grand prize is $1,000. It is open to writers from around the world, aged 18 or older.

According to the contest page:

One Health is an effort by the CDC that recognizes the connection among the health of people, animals and the environment to achieve optimal health outcomes. You can learn more about One Health here. The One Health concept is the basis for this year’s contest.

The news today is full of stories of disease and environmental destruction. We ask authors to imagine a world in which technology has improved One Health —  the health of the environment, humans, and all living things.

The contest is open to writers around the world, aged 18 or over.

You should also read their previous winners, to get an idea of what they publish.
