On Saturday, March 22 at 8PM, BSFS will host a free, public roundtable on “The State of Short Fiction.” Editors Neil Clarke (Clarkesworld), Scott H. Andrews (Beneath Ceaseless Skies), Jonathan Landen (Daily Science Fiction), Norm Sherman (Drabblecast), Bill Campbell (Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond), along with writer Erica Satifka (Clarkesworld, Daily Science Fiction) will participate in the discussion lead by moderator, writer and BSFS member Sarah Pinsker (Fantasy & Science Fiction, Lightspeed, Asimov’s).

This roundtable will go in-depth on the current state of the short fiction market. The panel includes top editors, writers, anthologists, and podcasters, in order to gather a complete picture of the field’s past, present, and future. Who are the new voices people should be reading? How do you fund a magazine or anthology? What makes a story work for podcast? This will be a great panel for readers and writers alike.
