Awards Eligibility!

Here’s my eligibility post for 2022! I wasn’t prolific publishing wise but I’m happy with what I put out. I had two short stories and one non fiction piece published. As always, there’s so much good work being written and shared. I hope you read some fantastic stories and discovered new writers you love. If you’re interested in seeing what I was up to, here are the links.

“Douen”

Published in The Dark Magazine, March 2022. 6000 words.

A retelling of the Trinidadian folk story told in Trinidadian dialect!

“Samantha isn’t sure why she’s dead and she just wants her mother to see her.”

Apolépisi: A De-Scaling

Published in Lightspeed Magazine, October 2022. 2400 words.

A Little Mermaid retelling with brown mermaids! What if becoming human wasn’t a decision but a destiny? This one is about love, grief, expectations and the inevitability of change.

I made a little reel for this one on instagram! It captures the vibe of the story perfectly for me.

Oral Storytelling and Culture as Personal Canon

Published in Fantasy Magazine, June 2022. 1300 words. Non-Fiction.

An exploration of the importance of oral story telling and culture in SFFH and my own writing. We aren’t just inspired by other writers, popular books and media properties. My history and culture form the foundations of my speculative work!

And those are my eligible works! There are other things I’m quite proud of from 2022. I was nominated for a nebula and a small press award. I will never forget the love and support shown for “Laughter Among the Trees.” It changed my life for the better. I loved helping produce the Ignytes with L.D. Lewis as well as teaching, “The DIY Workshop” for the Carl Brandon Society. I was lucky enough to be included in interviews, be on panels and to go to my first in person conventions. I’m grateful. This community has given me so much and I tried to give back as much as I could and I’ll keep trying next year. Thanks so much for reading this post and for your time!
