We welcome new contributions of short works inspired by genes and genomics. Ideally your contribution would be related to a specific gene, but if not, don’t worry.
Your contribution will, unless you ask otherwise, be shown with a link to your own website or blog, so this is a good way to spread the word.
Pieces may later be displayed in a variety of formats and media, besides this website: an exhibition, a book or booklet, a set of postcards, etc.
The only right we’re asking is for is the right to reproduce the work for the life of the project and in any medium (online, print, public exhibition, interactive display etc) — but only as part of this project. All work will be fully attributed. You are, of course, free to publish your work anywhere else and in any way you like.
I’ve got two things up on the site: a 1200-word short story called ‘The Chrome Chromosome’ and a 10-line poem called ‘Chromosome Poem’ (you see what I did there? With the titles?). You’ll find them under chromosome 13.
You know what? You should definitely think about submitting something. [AR]
