Galactic Suburbia 134

In which we throw our remit out the window to talk about a year’s worth of non-SFF!

What’s New on the Internet

This year, the Tiptree Motherboard established the Tiptree Fellowship Program to seek out and support creators who are striving to complete new works and make their voices heard. By adding Fellows each year, this program will create a network of creators who can build connections, support each other, and find opportunities for collaboration.

First Tiptree Fellows: Walidah Imarisha and Elizabeth LaPensée.

You can donate to encourage these and other new creators – donate through PayPal — or you can mail a check to 680 66th Street, Oakland, CA 94609.
