National Novel Writing Month: Writing Competition
November is the National Novel Writing Month, and to celebrate the MTMC and the Lode are co-hosting a writing competition. There will be two competitions: a short story competition and a poetry competition. Submissions should be no more than two pages in length, and should address one of the following prompts:
1. You are tasked with representing humanity at the first-ever meeting between humans and aliens. What did you say to make them angry and how will you prevent the invasion?
2. There are plenty of stories out there that talk about somebody making a leap into another world. Lucy stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia, Matthew McConaughey rocketed through a wormhole, and Neo took the red pill. In that spirit, tell us a story about a portal: any portal.
3. Alexander Flemming discovered antibiotics accidentally when he found a mold killing bacteria cultures in his lab. Serendipity has the potential to change our worlds in ways we never anticipated, so tell us a story of a time somebody found something they weren’t looking for.
Submissions are due on November 30, and should be sent to email@example.com. The winners will be awarded fabulous prizes and have their work published in the Lode and on the MTMC website! Happy writing!
Critically Acclaimed Documentary, He Named me Malala

A reflection discussion will follow the film. Admission is free. The event is sponsored by Michigan Tech Academic Affairs, International Programs and Services, and Michigan Tech Film Board.
About the Film:
He Named me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
