A dramatic love story that unfolds in a world with various Free Private Cities? A heroic saga where the protagonist defends a free society against a totalitarian Ancien Régime? A detective story where the investigator works for a premier international arbitration court?
The idea of individual liberty is inspiring and exciting. Next to explaining and proving the concept, it is essential to bring Free Private Cities into being in the mental and emotional sphere.
We therefore hold our first story contest. Write about fictional events in the future that are somehow related to Free Private Cities; Everyone is invited to participate and send a well-written piece of at least 2’000 words in English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, German or Russian to [email protected].
The winners will be presented in the next edition of the Newsletter and on the website; In addition, your story might make it into an Anthology on Free Private Cities.
