Climate Change is a topic that’s on everyone’s mind these days. Studies have shown that one of the helpful ways to deal with difficult topics is to write about them. Fiction is particularly helpful to be able to explore our thoughts and emotions.
CleanAir.club is a new section of Voice.club that is focused on Climate Change. Our first prompt under CleanAir.club is “Choices”.
We invite you to write a story of 350 words or less with a theme of climate change. We especially would like stories that describe choices that affect our climate or result from changes in the climate. Perhaps the choices were those made in the distant past that have led to current conditions, or perhaps the choices are ones we can make now to help alleviate our challenges. Some of our past shortlisted stories are good examples of those with an underlying theme of climate change, even though they don’t all mention choices:
We invite you to explore various choices in your own new stories. We look forward to hearing your ideas and reflections about this very timely topic. Since this topic is so important to our lives and to future generations, we will immediately publish and shortlist well-written stories that meet our criteria and that we believe will inspire helpful discussions. We believe that the discussions of these stories may help all of us deal with this challenging topic.
Good luck in the contest!
