The environmental literary journal Flyway has launched a short fiction contest:
The Sweet Corn Short fiction contests celebrates fiction about the environment. We interpret “the environment” broadly here and encourage work that surprises us with your interpretation of the word. We’re looking for fiction that focuses on place, environmental issues, the urban environment, or perhaps characters or circumstances that exist solidly in other disciplines–anthropology, biology, physics or philosophy, for instance. We’re really just looking for a brilliant story. Challenge our conceptions of the environment and environmentally driven work. Above all, surprise us!
The winner will receive organic sweet corn — and $500.
Deadline: March 31
