We Need Diverse Books has launched a new program, the Black Creatives Fund, starting in Spring 2021. The program, sponsored by Penguin Random House, is devoted to “supporting emerging and established Black writers and illustrators,” with plans including a workshop on revision, mentorships, and marketing education in association with The Brown Bookshelf, a group devoted to promoting children’s literature by Black creators. The revision workshop will include stipends for a dozen writers and the opportunity to submit manuscripts to PRH. For more: <diversebooks.org/programs/black-creatives-fund>.
While you are here, please take a moment to support Locus with a one-time or recurring donation. We rely on reader donations to keep the magazine and site going, and would like to keep the site paywall free, but WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue quality coverage of the science fiction and fantasy field.
