When initially posted, this page announced the first TSAT writing contest (whose winners were announced in the Sep./Oct. 2000 issue) and informed potential competitors of the rules for said contest. There were prizes for the top three entries; the first, second and third place stories would all be published in TSAT. In addition, the first prize winner would receive M.A. Foster's Morphodite / Transformer / Preserver trilogy, and the second prize winner got a copy of Clifford Simak's They Walked Like Men. While the new management sees no reason to preserve the rules of this long-past contest, its stated goal is worth a look:
Write an original story, never published or distributed anywhere, that describes both a transformation and at least one social impact of the change. By social impact, we mean the effect that someone's transformation has on the community, country, or world around them, not just their friends and/or immediate family that changes the "future of society" (eg new laws, changes in banking practices, how to tell who's who, etc).
