Author News – May 2020 (Writing and Hope Edition)

A
This newsletter is just a list of announcements (no feature):

* Sunlight Press is seeking submissions about light and hope.
* Contemporary Verse 2 is seeking submission about whether there is hope.
* I will present on writing realistic utopias at the Compose Writers conference next Saturday.

All details be here.

I do think there’s hope, though at times it’s hard to see. But one thing that will be necessary to achieving it is raising taxes on the rich, including on wealth (not just income) and corporations. Civilization can’t survive by fighting for table scraps. My hopeful thought of the day!
