Jackie Fallis is the recipient of this year’s Working Class Writers Grant, presented by the Speculative Literature Foundation (SLF). The $1,000 grant is given annually to assist working class, blue-collar, poor, and homeless writers who “have been historically underrepresented in speculative fiction, due to financial barriers which have made it much harder for them to have access to the writing world.”
Jackie Fallis is from Ontario, California. They write speculative literature as well as essays on disability and scifi. Recently they’ve had a short-short published by Doug Weller, and they have an essay in ATB Publishing’s upcoming book on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Their favorite (but most stressful) writing experience is the 48 Hour Film Festival which they’ve developed scripts for the last eight years in a row. Jackie has a BA in Creative Writing from the University of Central Florida.
