Expanded Horizons



The mission of Expanded Horizons is to increase diversity in speculative fiction and to create a venue for the authentic expression of under-represented voices in the genre. We do not publish material which does not fit with and further the mission of our magazine.

Our specific objectives include (but are not limited to):

Increasing the number of authentically portrayed people of color in speculative fiction
Increasing authentic ethnic diversity in speculative fiction
Increasing the number of women authors in speculative fiction
Increasing the number of authentically portrayed gay, lesbian, bisexual and asexual people in speculative fiction
Increasing the number of authentically portrayed transgender, transsexual, intersex and genderqueer/fluid people in speculative fiction
Increasing the number of authentically portrayed people with disabilities in speculative fiction
Publishing essays on speculative fiction and fandom which relate closely to the challenges and importance of diversifying the field
Creating a venue so that under-represented minorities who tend to be represented unrealistically or negatively in most speculative fiction may speak out in their own voice

We are expressly welcoming of submissions from esoteric minorities, including Otherkin in the broadest and most inclusive definition of the term, Vampyres, and people with rare, energetic sensitivities and awarenesses.
