Holdfast Magazine Fundraising Campaign for New Print Anthology

If you’ve not had chance to check out the Holdfast magazine site yet, go and take a look. It’s full of great articles and fiction. Now, the creators are bringing out a print anthology of new writing –  both fiction and non-fiction – and they need your help.

Holdfast is a free online speculative fiction magazine  that celebrates and examines these amazing genres. For those supporting the Indiegogo campaign, they have sought out some great prizes including signed books by Frances Hardinge, Emma Newman and Stephanie Salter, Holdfast logo tote bags, and much more.

HoldfastIf you would also like your work to be considered for the online version of Issue#4 Diverse Reflections: Seeing Yourself in Speculative Fiction, it’s not too late. Holdfast says on their submissions page “In this issue we will look at people who aren’t represented in speculative fiction as much as they should be. For example, people of colour, lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, and people with disabilities. Everyone should be able to see themselves reflected in their world, including SFF fans. It seems, however, that much like other media, this just isn’t the case.” Submissions deadline is September 21st.

About Donna Scott

Chair of the BSFA since June 2013. Prior to this I was Awards Administrator, taking over that role from Claire Briarley in 2008. I am officially Donna Bond since getting married in May 2013, but continue to write and perform under my previous name, Donna Scott. My short fiction stories have been published in various anthologies and magazines, and I was winner of the inaugural Short Cuts at the MAC in 2005. As a comedian, I have performed all over the UK. Comedy has also given me the opportunity to perform alongside big names like Sarah Millican and Jasper Carrott! As a poet, I've also performed all over the place, including lots of science fiction conventions, and sometimes my poetry and comedy get kind of mixed up. I was the first official Bard of Northampton, it's true. I've got a tankard that says so... I love being a part of the BSFA - I've always been a devourer of books and being part of this association has enabled me to explore some great science fiction classics - and classics of the future, that I might otherwise have not heard about. I've met some lovely people with an enthusiasm for the genre, made firm friends, and got to meet some of my favourite writers, too! As a writer, I also have to say that FOCUS is the best magazine for writers I've ever come across - and as a member I get that for free. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this?
