Redstone Science Fiction is calling for contest submissions that incorporate the values discussed in the essay The Future Imperfect by Sarah Einstein.

What does a world, or space station, or whatever look like when it has been designed to be accessible to everyone and how would people live together there?

The submissions should portray disability as a simple fact, not as something to be overcome or something to explain why a character is evil. The submissions should also incorporate the portrayal of disability in a world where universal access is a shared cultural value.

The story chosen by Sarah Einstein and our editors will be published in our September issue.

Specifics:
The contest will be open from June 15th until August 15th.
The maximum word limit will be 5000 words.
The winner will be awarded $300 (at least 6 cents/word).

Thanks to Mark Siegel of The 19th Floor for the tip.
