Quantum Shorts’ Flash Fiction Competition Closes; Over 650 Submissions Shared Online

By IQT News posted 11 Mar 2020

(QuantumShorts) The Quantum Shorts flash fiction competition is moving into its next phase. Submissions closed on 29 February 2020, and eligible entries have now been published to the website. Over 650 writers from all over the world responded to the fiction call and sent in their quantum-inspired stories.
Click here to read the submissions.
The submissions have gone to the shortlisting panel. The members of our shortlisting panel are physicists and communicators from leading quantum research centres around the world. They bring a wealth of experience between them, from expertise in quantum cryptography, to experience in science museums and training in archaeology. You can read more about the panel here. With all the amazing stories submitted this year, we honestly don’t envy the task that awaits them!
The shortlisting panel will judge the submissions based on four criteria: storyline, creative use of the constraint (“things used to be so simple”), link to quantum physics, and quality of writing. Ultimately, they have to choose just ten.
The shortlisted stories will be announced in May.
