The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

The Reinvented Heart



Description
Limited Demographic: Female and nonbinary writers.

Science fiction often thinks about the technology and science without considering the ways social structures will change as tech changes — or not. What will relationships look like in the future when we have complications like clones, uploaded intelligences, artificial brains, or body augmentation? What happens when emotions like love and friendship span vast distances — in space, in time, and in the heart? And as we acknowledge differences in gender in a way we never have before, what stories are finally given the space in which to emerge?

Among the stories I hope to see:

Stories that focus on the relationship between an individual and a community or communities, or even on relationships between communities or social groups.
Stories that complicate sex and gender by showing how shifting technology may affect social attitudes and practices.
Stories with romances that reinvent traditional tropes and recast them for the 21st century.
Stories that experiment, astonish, and entertain.
