Devonix and Martha Riva Palacio Obón are the 2019 recipients of the Otherwise Fellowship (formerly the Tiptree Fellowship). Each winner will receive a $500 grant, and work produced as a result of this support will be recognized and promoted by the Otherwise Award.
“The Otherwise Award celebrates works of speculative fiction that imagine new futures by exploring and expanding our understanding of gender roles. Through the Fellowship Program, the Award also encourages those who are striving to complete works, to imagine futures that might have been unimaginable when the Award began.”
Honorable mentions went to Marina Berlin, M.L. Krishnan, Kailee Pedersen, and Aigner Loren Wilson. The selection committee was composed of Vida Cruz, Ana Hurtado, Gabriela Damián Miravete, and Rox Samer.
