Applications are open for Sommnium Times Short Fiction Writing Contests. Sommnium Times Short Fiction is fiction that unfolds in the Metaverse. Moreover, the term is typically used to describe the concept of a future iteration of the internet, made up of persistent, shared, 3D virtual spaces linked into a perceived virtual universe.

Somnium Space is one of the destinations in the Metaverse. Practically, for the contests, it is looking for captivating fiction that has physical reality and virtual reality (Somnium Space) as its setting. In your stories, you are allowed to combine both as long as it has a strong connection with Somnium Space. Stories may also unfold solely in Somnium Space with no connection to the physical reality.
