About The Contest

What happens when neuroscientists get creative? Come tell us! We have established an exclusive award for the creative writer in you! We would like to invite attendees including undergrads to submit a short neuroscience based fiction piece! That is, entries must be unpublished work of fiction with a neuroscience theme for the Neurofiction Contest. The word limit is 1500 words, which is about 3 pages with single spaced lines. Let your creative juices guide your pen!
Please email submissions to monsoonbrain@gmail.com with the subject line "Neurofiction submission" and the title in the body of the email. Please submit a PDF version if you can. One submission allowed per individual.
Extended Deadline: June 15.
