We’re excited to announce the seventh annual short fiction writing contest “Healthy Together: Innovations for One Health”

One Health is an effort by the CDC that recognizes the connection among the health of people, animals and the environment to achieve optimal health outcomes. You can learn more about One Health here. The One Health concept is the basis for this year’s contest.

The news today is full of stories of disease and environmental destruction. We ask authors to imagine a world in which technology has improved One Health —  the health of the environment, humans, and all living things.

Let the reader see this future world through your eyes. Let us see how people — whatever that means — try to live in harmony with the natural world and society, how they maintain their own health and happiness, how they overcome challenges. But most of all, tell a good story, with characters we care about, setting, conflict, and resolution.

Your story should be consonant with the Sapiens Plurum mission:

“To inspire us — the first species that can intentionally impact its own evolution — to aspire beyond what was humanly possible.”
