The Destroy series is something I’ve admired since it first began with Women Destroy Science Fiction back in 2014. Lightspeed magazine did phenomenal work with the series, and I was thrilled and deeply honoured when Uncanny Magazine took over the project for Disabled People and asked me to be the Guest Fiction Editor. I’m privileged to be working with a wonderful team, and we’re all very excited to move ahead with the project.
The guidelines for Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction are now live at Uncanny Magazine, and we hope people will share them widely. As we indicate in the guidelines, we are hoping to receive guidelines from a broad range of disabled creators:
We welcome submission from writers who identify themselves as disabled. Identity is what matters for this issue. What kinds of disabilities? All of them. Invisible and visible. Physical disabilities, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, mental health disabilities, and neurodiversity.
We will be open to submission from January 15th to February 15th, 2018. Please read the guidelines and submit during the submission window.
We’re all tremendously excited about the project and we are eager to read your work!
