O.K. so we’re waaay behind on sorting out the Bill Hick, Science Prick contest, but figure that the best way to deal with that is to simply host another writing contest. This time, the book on the line is “I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean!” by Kevin Sherry.

This book is great by the way, and this appears regardless of the fondness many people have for squids.


This time we’ll take any kind of submission. Just send some stuff in – because essentially the thing we like the best, is the thing that will make us send this book in thanks. Oh, and if you’re not sold yet, let us also tell you that this book comes with bath stickies. That’s right, bath stickies! In fact, we at the Science Creative Quarterly wonder if this may be the first time in literary history that a writing contest has been hosted where bath stickies are to be won.

Anyway, submissions can be sent to tscq@interchange.ubc.ca, and the deadline for all of this fun is December 13th, 2007 (which happens to be the same date as our iPod giveaway – don’t forget to link to the truth to enter that one).

Good luck!
