DISCLAIMER: Do not pay or release sensitive financial details to any organizer/recruiter unless futher verified from your end.
According to the press release,
You do not have to literally use this phrase in your story. You may interpret liberally any of the words in the phrase: city, wild, and garden. Plot elements must include cities, nature, and people. It has to be fiction (that is, a story, not an essay)—any genre, from science fiction to magical realism—and can be about anything: climate change; food security; utopias; wild nature; a love story; … anything. At TNOC, we are very interested in imagining cities in which nature and people co-exist, cities in which the relationships between the human-made and the natural are imagined differently”.


• Writers from all nationalities are welcome to apply. There are no geographical restrictions.
• Writers must be 16 years and above.

Submission Guidelines:

• Stories must not exceed the word count: 750 words or less (not including the title)
