SFWA “Star Project” Awarded to 2017 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide

Logo SFWA-Web squareSFWA is pleased to announce that a “SFWA Star Project” contribution has been awarded to the 2017 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide by Corie and Sean Weaver of Dreaming Robot Press. This science fiction anthology for middle grade readers is raising funds for its third annual collection. A pledge has been made from the Givers Fund via the Self Publishing Committee. Congratulations!

From the 2017 Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide’s Kickstarter campaign :

“When I was a child, the school library had a Girls’ Section, which included fairy tales, and a Boys’ Section, which included all the science fiction. Things have changed, of course, but not enough. There is a strong need for science fiction, as opposed to fantasy, aimed at girls, especially in the middle grades. This anthology is an important contribution to the effort to fill that need, and I’m delighted to be a part of it.”~ Nancy Kress, winner of six Nebulas, two Hugos, a Sturgeon, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award

We’ve got another great collection of 24 stories from amazing authors, ranging from Nebula and Hugo winners to relative newcomers to the field. Our characters are white, black, asian, latino. Human and robot. Everyone belongs here.

You too can help make the third collection of the Young Explorer’s Adventure Guide a reality.
