Pinned toot

Hello everyone! I just wanted to thank @phildini for offering to host us!

We're Luna Station Quarterly, now in our TENTH year of publishing emerging women-identified scifi/fantasy authors and their amazing short fiction.

We've got a blog that publishes most of the week as well and here and other places we post about those things as well as inspirational quotes from awesome women.

Happy to be on the fediverse at last!
