Discussion: QSF’s Year in Review – And Where Do You Want to Go in 2016?

qsf-new-logo

Hey all,

It’s been a banner year for the Queer Sci Fi Site and group, and it’s all thanks to the amazing members we have. It’s hard to believe that I started this group just two years ago, in January 2014. But our second year brought many changes:

  • We grew to more than 1400 members on our FB discussion group
  • We launched our second Flash Fiction contest, and with it, our first book
  • We held a number of informational “weeks” – on Submissions, Promotion, Running a Small Press, Graphic Novels, and more
  • We will have announced more than 350 LGBT speculative fiction books
  • We brought on BA Brock as our official reviewer
  • Angel proved to be an amazing co-Admin, putting out fires and making QSF work
  • We launched our first annual QSF Holiday Blog Hop, with more than twenty stops and 14 participating authors
  • We attended our first Con – Rainbow Con in Tampa – and met many of our members in person
  • …for which we created what Angel calls “the world’s smallest collector buttons” – of course, that’s more of an “oops” (remembers Angel sadly shaking her head when she saw them)
  • We launched a page on RedBubble to sell QSF swag, along with a new logo
  • We re-launched our critique group in Scribophile
  • We launched a new NaNoWriMo support group, which morphed into a Writer’s Workshop
  • We joined Twitter

I apologize if I have missed anything!

The new year is almost upon us, and we want to keep building the momentum. And so I want to ask our members to help us out again.

Where do you want to see the site/group go in 2016? Are there things we aren’t doing that we should be? Want to volunteer to help out? Let’s brainstorm!
