Samuel R. Delany fellowship longlist announced!

I am so excited about this! The inaugural Samuel R. Delany fellowship for diverse voices in speculative fiction has released its longlist of candidates. From this group of outstanding emerging and early career writers, a short list of 5 will be announced, one of whom will win $10,000, a laptop, and mentoring from a NYT bestselling author towards publication of their novel project. This fellowship’s sponsoring organization Catstone Books is doing wonderful things, and I couldn’t be prouder of my former student, Joshua Demarest, for this brainchild, or more honored to be an advisory board member supporting this organization’s important sponsoring and publishing initiatives.

If you would like to contribute to Catstone Books initiatives to promote greater representation and diversity in speculative literature, you can do so here:
