Each day provides a unique writing prompt. Work quickly, as you’ll have only that day to post, and a new opportunity comes the next day.

Who is Strong Women Strange Worlds?

The mission of Strong Women Strange Worlds is to elevate the voices of women and other underrepresented gender identity authors of science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

Twice monthly, in the one-hour First Friday – Third Thursday Quick Reads, 6 authors have 8 minutes each to enchant you with an excerpt from their work. You’ll meet new authors and perhaps hear from some you already know.

A special edition of Quick Reads by New England authors will be held on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 in collaboration with the Thayer Public Library in Braintree, MA.

The regular Quick Reads resumes on Thursday, January 20, 2022 (5pm ET) and Friday, February 4, 2022 (Noon ET). For more information and registration for all events, check out our website: https://strongwomenstrangeworlds.weebly.com/.

Hope to see you at the Party!
