  • Together Towards Tomorrow

  • Back to the Future



  • Fiction/Non-Fiction: 2500 words (1 piece)

  • Poetry (1-2 pieces)

  • Photography: .jpeg or .png (1-2 photos)

  • Artwork: All work must be original. (1-2) pieces, any media – painting, drawing, digital, etc. Artwork must be scanned and sent in .jpeg or .png format.)



Q: I am interested in this theme. Please tell me more! 

A: The theme is based on Time, in the frames of the future.


"Back to the Future," asks you to reflect on the past and how you wish the future to be. 


You could think of "Together Towards Tomorrow" as an exploration of community, reparation, and a hopeful future. 


Q: Would the products need to be related to the current pandemic?

A: The theme is open to interpretation. Submissions do not necessarily have to be related to the pandemic, but you may draw connections when describing the future.
