Submissions for the Speculative Literature Foundation’s (SLF) Diverse Writers Grant and Diverse Worlds Grant are open now through July 31, 2021. Each $500 grant “is intended to support the SLF’s mission of promoting literary quality in speculative fiction” and are awarded by SLF staff on the basis of merit.
The Diverse Writers Grant “is intended to support writers of speculative fiction who are from underrepresented and underprivileged groups, such as writers of color, women, queer writers, disabled writers, etc. — those whose marginalized identities may present additional obstacles in the writing / publishing process.”
The Diverse Worlds Grant “is intended for work that best presents a diverse world, regardless of the writer’s background.”
For more information, or to apply, see the SLF website.
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.
