#AwardsEligibility 2021

I have this fantasy where I win stuff but continue to Not Be Perceived, which uhhh. Anyway I had several things out in 2021: two short stories, three nonfiction articles, and (pls do not tell 2010s Priya) a poem. Not sure about the nonfiction (although I am very proud that I managed to go full Classics nerd in a blog about technical skills! Like seriously I got my sister to send me a picture from Hesiod’s Theogony), but the other stuff is eligible for…stuff, as long as it’s applicable to US residents whose first language is English.

Before I get into it, I would like to shout out all the editors who made this happen :’O You are very appreciated! Especially when you don’t run away screaming from my bullshit haha.


Neither of these are freely available online, so here are links to the blog posts I wrote about them, which contain details on where to buy:

Woman, Soldier, Girl ~5800 words in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, July/August 2021

Where the Light Had Been ~2600 words in Neon Hemlock’s Unfettered Hexes anthology


Dragonslayer – Fantasy Magazine, February 2021


As mentioned above I don’t think these are as relevant to SFF awards, but I’m linking them anyway because they might be interesting??

Using Unreliable Narration to Create Voice – SFWA blog. Some thoughts I had on voice and how fiction is at its best when you lie a lot. (I kid. Or do I? Read it and find out!)

What Do Merfolk Notice on Land? – Mermaids Monthly, September issue. This was part of the climate change issue so there’s a lot here about what humans have done to the ocean, framed in terms of…what the title says. Also the time I followed a turtle around. Also something like 1 reference for every 10 words. Bless Zotero.

On the Destruction and Restoration of Habitats – Reckoning Issue 5. Listen I am not Captain Creative Titles here, it’s ruminations on stewardship work I’ve done.

Want to know what's going to hit your life without being bogged down in mudslinging? I'm tired of politics, too.
