UCSD Geisel Library says
Mark your calendars #Tritons! If you enjoy creative writing or listening to original short stories, you won’t want to miss Geisel Library’s Flash-Fantasy-Sci-Fiction: Short Tales From the Mothership event on Thursday, January 19 from 7:30 – 8:30pm! Students, faculty, staff, alumni and the general public are encouraged to submit short Fantasy-Sci-Fiction stories of 250 words or less around the theme of Geisel Library, aka the Mothership.

Early entries should be submitted to lib-adgallan@mail.ucsd.edu by Tuesday, January 17. On Thursday (1/19), participants will have the opportunity to read or have their entries read aloud at a Flash-Fiction gathering in the Seuss Room.

“Short Tales from the Mothership” is the first meeting of our micro-fiction project. We’ll identify further writing goals and look for future co-hosts that evening—but, mostly, we’ll be celebrating an elegant genre by listening to short tales from fellow futurists, time-travelers, inventors, artists and writers. This evening is inspired by the short postcard stories that magazine editor George Hay encouraged in the 1970’s. He dared such authors as Arthur C. Clarke to send sci-fi stories that easily fit onto a postcard.

Questions and general inquiries can be directed to alumnus and Library staff member Scott Paulson at spaulson@ucsd.edu or (858) 822-5758.

This event is FREE and open to the public. Otherworldly libations from our refreshment laboratory will be served.
