ONLINE EVENT: Beyond Afrofuturism — MAY 17

Join me and Black editors Eboni Dunbar (FIYAH Magazine),  Brent Lambert (FIYAH Magazine), Chinelo Onwualu (Omenana/Anathema), and LaShawn Wanak (Giganotosaurus). 

We’ll be discussing their journeys into editing and the role editors play in creating space for the voices of BIPOC communities in the speculative fiction field.

Moderated by Arley Sorg of Locus and Fantasy Magazine.

Further information and how to log on is here!

Neon Hemlock and Baffling Magazine

I will be co-editing Baffling Magazine, a new flash fiction venue that specializes in Weird Fiction with a queer bent, alongside dave ring, who runs the Neon Hemlock micropress. (“Weird Fiction” isn’t strictly Lovecraftian/cosmic horror here; it includes the new fabulism of Kelly Link and Jeffrey Ford).

A submission announcement will go up soon. In the meantime, you can check out the mostly skeletal website here.

Speaking of Neon Hemlock, they are also running a chapbook contest (poetry/fiction/nonfiction categories) for the OutWrite Literary Festival, which happens every summer. It is only opened to writers in the DVM (District-Virginia-Maryland) area and has some awesome judges.
