The Dead Robots' Society

Writers on Writing


We at the Dead Robots’ Society are excited to let everyone know that we are hosting a short story contest. If you are interested in joining the fun, here are the rules:

1. The story can be no longer than 5,000 words.

2. The story must involve a robot, though how that occurs is entirely up to you, so be creative! A fantasy story, even a horror story, can involve a robot, so don’t think we’re wanting sci-fi writers only to become involved in this. The robot can be dead, alive, central to the plot, or just one of the many characters you have in your story. We leave its involvement entirely up to you.

3. The story must be submitted by December 31st.

And that’s it! The winner of the contest will win a Dead Robots’ Society t-shirt autographed by the hosts of the show, and of course – if the winning writer permits it – we will display the story on our main site as well as in the forums so that everyone can read it. I hope we get plenty of submissions, and I hope everyone has as much fun with this as we’re planning on having
