Quantum Shorts Flash Fiction Contest 2024


Writers, gear up for the last open call for Quantum Shorts's flash fiction. The contest is free to enter and is accepting submissions until 8 January 2024.  

Interested writers are required to craft a story no longer than 1000 words that takes inspiration from quantum physics. The story must also incorporate the phrase “nobody said this was going to be easy”. 

The phrase comes from a quantum researcher in "Helping Hands", the last story to claim first prize in Quantum Shorts. In that story by Cora Valderas, the researcher was grappling with the unexpected outcomes of an experiment. Writers may empathise as they plot about the trials and tribulations of building quantum devices or the complexities and uncertainties that govern the quantum world.

About The Quantum Shorts's Flash Fiction Contest 2024

Quantum Shorts is organised by the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore. We are grateful for the support of our returning international partners. Scientific American, the longest continuously published magazine in the U.S., and Nature, the international weekly journal of science, are media partners for the competition. Leading scientific institutions the Dodd-Walls Centre, the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS), the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM), QuTech, and the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme are scientific partners of the competition. 

“Humans love stories. That’s why we have supported Quantum Shorts for more than a decade. We were thrilled and surprised by all the ways writers got inspired by quantum physics in previous editions. Now we’re opening our final call, we hope to be amazed and astonished again,” says judge José Ignacio Latorre, Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) at the National University of Singapore.
