Some previous projects:

TecnoCuentos contest. Edition 2019.

TecnoCuentos invited any person interested in technology, to present a literary work that has something to say about the challenges, dilemmas, enigmas and provocations that technology presents. Regardless of the type of technology chosen as the protagonist of the story, we are interested in knowing new perspectives on the technological universe, its spaces of power, its relationships and the invisible world that they propose. You can submit a poem, a story, or texts in a free format.
