Meet our panelists - editors of five of the exciting new magazines in the genre: Mermaids Monthly, Constelacion, Martian Magazine, Fantasy Magazine, and The Deadlands!
For Mermaids Monthly: Julia Rios
Julia Rios (they/them) is a queer, Latinx writer, editor, podcaster, and narrator whose fiction, non-fiction, and poetry have appeared in Latin American Literature Today, Lightspeed, and Goblin Fruit, among other places. They are currently the editor of Mermaids Monthly, and their editing work has won multiple awards including the Hugo Award. Julia is a co-host of This is Why We’re Like This, a podcast about the movies we watch in childhood that shape our lives, for better or for worse. They’ve narrated stories for Escape Pod, Podcastle, Pseudopod, and Cast of Wonders. They’re @omgjulia on Twitter.
For Constelacion - Coral Moore
Coral Moore has always been the kind of girl who makes up stories. Fortunately, she never grew out of that. She writes character driven fiction, and enjoys conversations about genetics and microbiology as much as those about vampires and werewolves.
She has an MFA in Writing from Albertus Magnus College and is an alum of Viable Paradise XVII. She has been published by Vitality Magazine, Diabolical Plots, and Zombies Need Brains and has stories upcoming in Lightspeed and 99 Tiny Terrors. She loves aquariums, rides a motorcycle, and thinks there is little better than a good cup of coffee.
In her most recent venture she is the co-editor and co-publisher of Constelación Magazine, a bilingual speculative fiction magazine publishing stories in Spanish and English.
