Limited Demographic: writers from marginalized groups including those from non-privileged racial, sexual, gender, national, religious, and ability background
Art is one of our primary means of interacting with, and changing, the world. Since the 2016 election racism, fascism, sexism, and nationalism have taken on new prominence in the United States. These dangerous views are becoming more acceptable to express. Fireweed aims to combat these views by instead celebrating the work of marginalized artists and authors writing during this time of social change.
We accept all works related to the current political moment, whether explicitly or implicitly. Of particular interest are works which celebrate resistance, provide catharsis, imagine positive (and even utopic) futures, provide inspiration for activists and revolutionaries, and otherwise uplift us during a time of deep sadness. Works do not need to be specific to the context of the United States. Non-English works may be accepted on a case-by-case basis. We accept all genres, with a particular fondness for Speculative/Science Fiction, fantasy, mystery, and romance.
