Flash from the Future

The creative writing competition is inspired by the blockbuster exhibition AI: More Than Human. Have you ever wondered about the future? What our world will look like and how the technology of today will change the way we live? It is asking you to explore those thoughts and share them with it in the form of short poems or flash-fiction stories. You can use one of the prompts it has suggested below or perhaps you have your own vision of the future you would like to explore.
