It’s All Trumped Up Essay Contest 2016
23 Aug 2016
Let your imagination run wild. We’re looking for everything from speculative fiction based on real possibilities to the fantastic.
What are the results of giving this much power to a megalomaniacal baby?
You tell us.
We are seeking speculative fiction that explores what four years of a Trump presidency would do to America and the world. Writers should submit stories ranging from his absurdity to the impact of his politics on the disenfranchised, our international friends, and world peace.
We are academics who see this book as a way to express the fear of a Trump presidency and lampoon his dangerous hysteria. Paul has a Ph.D. in Digital Media from Georgia Tech, produced and hosted the Science Fiction Lab on WREK Atlanta 91.1 FM for a decade, and has some experience in editing and publishing. Josh is a Ph.D. student in Digital Media, has run a successful digital humanities startup and has a Masters in Writing and Publishing from DePaul University.
1st = $100
