We would like to make a rad zine of queer scifi from DC-area writers, and then do a free community reading of the work either online or at Rhizome DC, a community art space in the Takoma.
Neon Hemlock Press is a small press based in Washington, DC. We are an emerging purveyor of speculative fiction, queer chapbooks, & literary candles. We've made a bunch of other zines in this exact format, and know how to do this sort of project with our eyes closed.
This would be an opportunity to partner with OutWrite DC, Rhizome DC, and four rad DC-based writers! For contributors, we would probably ask Craig Gidney, Malka Older, Marlena Chertock and Rasha Abdulhadi.
