Over the past decade, the strive for diversity in speculative and horror fiction has gained traction. No longer content with old-guard monoculture, audience and creators have indicated their propensity for minority voices in literature and readiness to become part of the cultural landscape. This has been met with backlash from certain sources resistant to change in the genre they love. The #MeToo movement has also given agency to voices previously underrepresented. This panel will examine what drew us to writing as a way of confronting oppression, the obstacles we face as content creators, audience expectations, and how we might succeed moving forward and encourage others to do the same.
