To encourage folks to write fiction for the site, I created my own short story, a€?Phineas T.
As you probably know, Ia€™m old.A  Writing is one more way for me to keep myself occupied in my a€?goldena€? years. Onion sites, so named because they end with a€?.oniona€?, are hosted as Tor Hidden Services a€“ a completely anonymous way to host websites.
Some of the seedy underbelly of the Web is located here, too, although many of the websites are probably scams, hoaxes, or just traps designed to catch people buying illegal services. Addresses in the .onion pseudo-TLD are opaque, non-mnemonic, 16-character alpha-semi-numeric hashes which are automatically generated based on a public key when a hidden service is configured. There are those who would criticise websites for writing about such things a€“ and Tor for enabling them. Law enforcement already knows these areas of the Web exist a€“ if not on Tor, theya€™d exist elsewhere. Tor doesna€™t introduce you to .onion sites when you start using it a€“ it just provides an encrypted way to access the normal Web.
The Tor Directory link will take you to a directory of .onion sites, which you can browse by category or search. The Hidden Wiki is theoretically located at this address, although ita€™s down at the moment. The wiki is a sorted index of active .onion sites by category, but dona€™t believe everything you read on it. That said, you could access some very disturbing imagery from here, so be careful what you click.
Therea€™s also a link to TorPM, a popular email-like private messaging system for Tor users. Surprise us with your imaginative science writing, wow us with your graphic non-fiction or impress us in poetry.
Theya€™re part of the Deep Web a€“ an invisible part of the Web thata€™s not visible to search engines and normal users. These 16-character hashes can be made up of any letter of the alphabet, and decimal digits beginning with 2 and ending with 7, thus representing an 80-bit number in base32.
While much of the content is no doubt entirely made-up, therea€™s some horrifying imagery you could see if youa€™re not careful a€“ but then, therea€™s horrifying stuff on the normal Web, too. Since theya€™re willing to break laws, they already have lots of options available that provide better privacy than Tor provides. To get started with .onion sites, youa€™ll have to be aware they exist and know their locations.
You can upload and share files, images, or text, create a new bulletin board or join an existing one. Upload your entry by the deadline on 30th June and you could win 300 Euros and see your work live online.See our tips for imaginative science writing.

The purpose of using such a system is to make both the information provider and the person accessing the information more difficult to trace, whether by one another, by an intermediate network host, or by an outsider.
The easiest way to use Tor is by downloading and installing the Tor browser bundle, It includes a modified version of Firefox with Tor and other settings preconfigured.

There's so much to think, discuss and write about in this exciting area of science, and so many different ways to do it. We know lots of you have got stories to tell too - about your view as a patient, your own research, or just something you read that got you fascinated by stem cells. We can't wait to see what you create!We've got a fantastic panel of judges lined up and you can choose from three quite unusual categories: imaginative science writing, graphic non-fiction and non-fiction poetry. We'd love it if you also explored other aspects of the research and its impact on society, and feel free to mix in your personal perspective or to look at the science from an unusual angle. There are three categories:Imaginative science writing"The words 'creative' and 'non?ction' describe the form. The word 'creative' refers to the use of literary craft, the techniques ?ction writers, playwrights, and poets employ to present non?ction—factually accurate prose about real people and events—in a compelling, vivid, dramatic manner. The goal is to make non?ction stories read like ?ction so that your readers are as enthralled by fact as they are by fantasy."Lee Gutkind, authorEntries in this category must take a creative non-fiction approach.
The genre covers a wide range or works and often includes personal narratives, weaving the author's story together with scientific fact.
Entries must be uploaded as a Word document using the online form.Non-fiction poetryPoems can take any non-fiction approach to the topic.
Entries must be uploaded as 300dpi CMYK jpeg files, zipped together to make one uploadable zip file.Who can enterScientists, patients, carers or enthusiasts of any kind. Please check our full competition Terms and Conditions to make sure you are eligible to enter and agree with our terms before submitting your entry.Collaborative entries are also welcome.
Got a good idea but need some help finding the words in English, or putting your graphic vision down on paper? We'll share your work (and your name!) with all our site visitors, newsletter subscribers, Twitter and Facebook followers across Europe and the world. The winning entries will also be showcased at a celebratory event about creative writing on stem cell and regenerative medicine research.
Runners up will be named on and their work may be published by EuroStemCell on our website or through our other activities.
Runners up will also be given free entry to our celebratory event in the UK, but will be expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs if they wish to attend.The judges and what they are looking forThe first thing the judges will check is whether your entry fits into one of the three competition categories so do read the above descriptions of what each category involves.
After that, the judges will be looking for: Originality and interest - Is what you've written worth a read?

Does it encourage the reader to think about your story and the science it contains?Scientific accuracy and relevance - Have you conveyed some key science relevant to stem cell and regenerative medicine research?
Have you checked your facts?Clarity and accessibility - Could an adult with no scientific background understand and engage with your content?
As long as you can answer 'yes' to all the above questions you can use whatever writing techniques work for your idea. He was the Science Editor of The Daily Telegraph for two decades and the Editor of New Scientist between 2008 and 2011.
