Au Contraire Anthology Submissions open

Posted on Updated on

The wonderful people over at Random Static are looking for short story submissions on the topic of Regeneration for next year’s anthology. Due date is December 2012, so gives you a bit of time to think about the topic.

Here’s a bit more info from the page:

Tell us stories of how cities and societies regenerate after disaster; of bodies regenerated by science or magic, and the consequences; or natural – or unnatural – environments thriving once more. We’d also like to see stories that examine the psychological or moral dimensions to regeneration, or any other interpretation of the theme.

I figure that, being from Christchurch, we should have a pretty unique perspective on this theme – and it could be kathartic to write about the regeneration (not just the destruction and loss).
