A Speculative Fiction Community for Independent Writers & Readers

The Fall of the RWA

1 min read

The mission of Our Own Worlds is to elevate marginalized voices in indie speculative fiction. In this case, we are weighing in on a developing story outside of our genre.

Recently the RWA have acted in an egregious matter, acting to punish an author for their criticism of racist elements in a book on social media. Although this punishment has been rescinded following community outcry, further instances of racism and bigotry within the RWA have come to light, and the future of the organization is now in question.

This is wrong. This is the worst form of bullying, to punch down on someone speaking truth to power. It will not stand.

We want to offer our support to our fellow indie authors affected by these events. If your work is even just a little bit fantastical, your happy-ever-afters can have a home with us.

Stay strong. We are with you.
