Gabriel Thibodeau won the Diverse Writers Grant (for new and emerging writers from underrepresented and underprivileged groups) and Eden Royce won the Diverse Worlds Grant (for work that best presents a diverse world, regardless of the writer’s background) for 2016, given by the Speculative Literature Foundation (SLF). Each grant is for $500 and is intended “to foster the creation of speculative fiction work rich in diversity.”
Winners are chosen by a jury of SLF staff members. Grants are made possible by contributions from Ellen Wright (Senior Publicist, Hachette Book Group) and Faye Bi (Publicist at Simon & Schuster).
