The Diverse Writers and Diverse Worlds grants are open to speculative fiction writers. Applications close July 31st.
The $500 Diverse Writers grant is intended to support new and emerging writers from underrepresented and underprivileged groups, such as writers of color, women, queer writers, disabled writers, working-class writers, etc. — those whose marginalized identities may present additional obstacles in the writing / publishing process.
The $500 Diverse Worlds grant is intended for work that best presents a diverse world, regardless of the writer’s background.
Writers can apply for both grants, if they want/fit the criteria.
The Inclusive Mainstream Publications tab has been updated with every resource we have available. The literary/periodical section now has thirty-two entries. The most recent ones are: Teen Vogue, Magma Poetry Magazine, Crab Fat Magazine, Polychrome Ink, Cosmonauts Avenue, The Huffington Post, and BuzzFeed READER.
We'd love to add more places! Please let us know if you can recommend any others.
Reminder: We are open for submissions of guest posts and book reviews. Pay is $3 via Paypal.
Books reviewed must have a disabled/neurodivergent main character and/or a disabled/neurodivergent author.
Guest posts must be about writing/books and disability/neurodivergence. A post about writing through brain fog, for instance, counts. A post about training guide dogs doesn't... unless you can tie it back to writing, somehow.
We are also looking for writers/editors to interview.
