Homeopathy Short Story Contest

Organized by Hpathy.com

$6000 worth of prizes to be won!

In association with Complete Dynamics

I was watching an old motion picture about a possessive mother who keeps her grown son at home and away from women, by feigning a heart condition. One day he calls in a doctor to examine her. The doctor tells the son that the mother is in perfect health. The son confronts his mother: “The doctor said there is nothing wrong with you!” The mother replies “That homeopath!”

In all my years, that was the first reference to homeopathy I ever saw in a movie. In fact, I couldn’t think of any references to homeopathy in any fiction I had read. Every subject seems to have been explored in fiction, except homeopathy. There are stories about allopathic doctors, cowboys, fireman, lumberjacks, farmers, mathematicians, dancers – you name it, but nothing about homeopathy.

There are still millions of people for whom homeopathy is just a curious word that doesn’t evoke any particular images. The surest way to introduce a subject to any culture is through its fiction. Therefore, Hpathy is holding a contest to develop fictional stories about homeopathy. They could be about romance, adventure, crime, mysteries, etc. The winning stories will be published in this journal, and the writers will receive fabulous prizes in addition to our praise!

So, fellow homeopathy enthusiasts, here’s your chance to make history! Dust off that typewriter and create a new genre!
