IEET wants short science fiction pieces that reflect on the social, moral, political, economic or philosophical consequences of future technologies, in particular pieces that touch on the IEET’s core issues - the ethics and policy dimensions of life extension, human enhancement, moral enhancement, non-human personhood, structural unemployment and catastrophic risks.
Submissions should be an entirely fictional, self-contained stories between 800-1500 words in length, and the genre should, broadly speaking, be “hard” science fiction - fiction that proposes plausible technologies considered within the realm of scientific possibility - as opposed to fantasy, slipstream or horror. Each item should be sent as a Word, RTF or plain text document attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org, including full contact details and a 30-word autobiographical note to be appended to the story if published. We ask contributors not to send pre-submission enquiries but to send the whole story. Rights are retained by the author, but stories may not be published or broadcast in other venues for 30 days after publication by the IEET.
