Monthly Micro Fiction Contest

Pick up our very first Micro Issue! Micro Issue #1 – A Solarpunk Mental Health Special is available to the public for free download via our Patron Page.

Submissions Open!

Submissions for May’s micro fiction contest are now open from May 20-26. There is no theme for the month of April, just general solarpunk.

This month we’re honoring Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a “Solarpunk in Asia and the Pacific Islands” theme. If you have Asian-Pacific Islander heritage, we want your micro fiction illustrating what a solarpunk future means for you!

Submissions must be 250 words or less and based on the monthly contest theme.

There are no submission or contest fees.
Submissions are capped at 100 per monthly contest.

One winner each month gets a prize of $25 and publication on the Solarpunk Magazine website, from where it will be emailed to hundreds of our blog subscribers and posted to our social media pages.

Each winner is announced the following month. All other regular submission guidelines apply.

All monthly micro fiction contest submission windows open at 12:01 a.m. on the third Friday of each month, and close at 11:59 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month.
