The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

And Lately, The Sun



Description
Note: remove all identifying information from manuscript for anonymous judging.

We want to see stories which thoughtfully investigate potential futures under our changing climate.

Give us substantial characters, vivid worlds, shiny (and not-so-shiny) wonders. Let us see not only new technology, but how society works with it – how we think, how we relate, how we live under its influence. Show us how we’ll obtain or produce our material needs. How we’re born, how we’ll grow, what will ail us, how we’ll die.
