Last night we reached our goal: $16,000.
(Cue fireworks and shrieks of glee! Also writers, editors, and allies busting moves!)
Work's not done: We've still got more than 30 hours, and we're just a bit over three thousand dollars from our stretch goal of $20,000, which will let us pay writers .07 cents a word. (Not as much as we would like to pay them, but a start!)
This will draw more submissions to CG, and let us publish even more excellent SF/F by and about women, PoC, LGBTQ people, and other under-represented groups in the SF/F world.
Plus! Fabulous prizes!
