If you are a writer fascinated by science or a science geek who loves to write, be sure to check out Quantum Shorts 2015, a flash fiction competition for “stories no longer than 1000 words – inspired by the quantum world.”

There is no entry fee, anyone age 13 and up can enter (ages 13-18 can choose between open or youth category), and the deadline is December 1, 2015. All entrants agree to make their submission available via Creative Commons licensing, so the collection becomes a kind of crowd-sourced quantum flash anthology.

Learn more about the contest. Read the rules. Get inspired by quantum theory. And read some of the entries submitted so far (including mine!).

Take advantage of Halloween weekend and challenge yourself to create a scary quantum tale. Happy writing!
