Story Contest:
Envisioning the Third Offset

March 25th, 2016

Last fall I participated in a free ebook anthology sponsored by The Atlantic Council’s Art of Future War Project. Now I get to be a judge in the next Art of Future War Project story challenge. If you like to write short stories, this might be for you.

The competition is looking for unpublished short stories on themes relating to the US Department of Defense’s “Third Offset Strategy” which is concerned with human-machine collaboration within the military. Check out the website for all the contest details, and note that “The winners of the best written and best visual art entries will receive a $500 honorarium.” Not bad, for a 4,000-word story.

The due date is April 18, less than a month away, so no procrastinating…

Other judges in the contest are Chris Martin, author of Engines of Extinction and Modern American Snipers, and Andrew Liptak who edited the War Stories anthology. Max Brooks, the author of World War Z, will be the final judge.
