You’ve got until 9 pm ET tonight to teleport yourself 100 years into the future and Tweet back the most profound, funny, prescient or downright silly news you can think of.

Get on the Twitterwaves and tell us today in the “Tweets from 2112” Writing Challenge. Write your best tweet from 100 years in the future with the hashtag #canadawrites. 

The Canada Writes Sci-Fi Twitter Challenge is from 9 am to 9 pm ET  today. An elite team of highly caffeinated, talented, and slightly offbeat writers from SF Canada will be reading the Twitter feed all day at #canadawrites and advising our celebrity judge on the strongest tweets.

The grand prize: An iPod Touch—we’ll also be giving away amazing books by Canadian sci-fi authors throughout the day (at least 2 per hour!).
