Angel just brought this to my attention, and we thought it was a worthy project to hilight:
Maiden, Mother, and Crone: Fantastical Trans Femmes is an upcoming anthology of new fantastical short fiction by trans women and trans feminine writers, edited by renowned writer Gwen Benaway (Love Beyond Body, Space and Time). Drawing on high fantasy and other genres of fantasy writing, Maiden, Mother, and Crone is the first anthology by trans femme authors to explore the realms of magic, supernatural beings, and alternative universes. Enter a universe of wonder where trans femmes are powerful heroines, sorceresses, and warriors fighting against dark forces in vivid magical worlds. With celebrated writers like Kai Cheng Thom, Casey Plett, and Gwen Benaway, this anthology will transform the landscape of fantasy and offer radical portals into excitement, danger, and transformation.
Trans women and trans feminine writers face numerous challenges in publishing their work. This anthology brings together established voices with emerging writers to help support a strong, vibrant trans feminine writing community. Writers like us are underrepresented in fantasy writing, even though so many of us are avid fantasy readers. Maiden, Mother, and Crone aims to change this dynamic and showcase the talent and wonder of trans feminine writers.
Maiden, Mother and Crone will bring together trans women and trans feminine writers from across North America to create an anthology worth reading past your bedtime. With these short stories, we offer a dynamic window into fantasy worlds with trans feminine main characters
Please support the work of trans women and trans feminine writers to imagine new and exciting worlds.
