Applications call for Language Evolves Short Story Competition. The competition encourages writers to be inspired by the field of language evolution. This might include engaging with our questions, imagining situations in the past or the future, speculating on how language might have evolved in a different species, or thinking about the consequences of our methods and practice. The shortlist will be judged by Arthur C. Clarke Prize winner and biological anthropologist Dr. Mary Doria Russell (The Sparrow).
The first-prize winner will receive a cash prize of £400 and the story will be published in the New Welsh Review (on an exclusive basis, subject to the usual editorial process). The 2nd and 3rd place stories will also be considered for publication in the New Welsh Review.
The Language Evolves Short Story Competition will have the following guidelines
