I want to hear a story set at some point in the future, inspired by the concept of Hollow Earth. Your story could be fantasy, horror, scifi, speculative, environmental, futuristic, or full on conspiracy theory based, as long as it’s fiction, there is no limit on the genre. How big the space below the surface of the earth is, what/who is down there, how /when it was found, what it’s like, that’s all up to you. It should be able to support life, but it doesn’t need to contain any when it’s found, although it equally could do. The perspective you chose and the story you tell is entirely up to you, you could set your story anywhere from the initial discovery of this cavity to the far distant future where it is just another part of the planet. I would like a fictional story set in the future featuring a cavity capable of supporting life below the surface of the earth. This could be the focus of your story, or it can be the background setting in which your story plays out, let your imagination run wild!

Hollow earth is such a fun idea, and once upon a time inspired all kinds of imaginative fiction. Science has brought us to the point where it seems easy to say it’s unlikely there is a huge empty space below the surface of the planet capable of supporting life, but hey, you never know, and there are vents on the ocean floor supporting life in the darkness there, so let’s get daydreaming, speculating, and writing! This is one of those ones that the more I turned over in my mind, the more possibility I could see in it, so I really can’t wait to see the depths you all go to with this one <3 Good luck, happy writing, love and sparkle ~ @calluna
