[sound of shuffling papers is heard over the intercom around the Void. A voice booms out, echoing around the walls]

Attention all. Thank you for your patience while we installed the intercom, screaming less is better for all our voices. Now, the announcements for the day...
In less than a week, the global Story Seed Vault will be re-opened to writers!


Once again, we're putting out the call for diverse sci-fi writers that are:
- Disabled
- First Nations
- Marginalised sexes, genders, & identities
- Neurodivergent
- Scientists (research & comms)

New or established, we want your micro-scifi based on real science! Want to know more? We've written some thorough submission guidelines for this year, so go take a look! storyseedvault.com/submissions/

I am a Deaf, Eritrean-American first-generation immigrant, and I have a couple of stories right up that alley.

Wandering Shop

The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
