Write a story that uses technology to transform something harmful into something beneficial or even beautiful. From crisis through chaos to social good. Let the reader see this future world through your eyes. Show us how your characters develop and use technology to bring our world to a better place. But most of all, tell a good story, with characters we care about, setting, conflict, and resolution.
