A Grim, Thin Hope: The Fantasy of Immediate Change

By Bree Taylor This is a creative non-fiction piece that examines how the author feels about being both a writer and consumer of SFF (Speculative Fiction, Science Fiction & Fantasy) in contemporary times. In the face of a pandemic, climate change, and oppressive political climates, it can be easy to dismiss the messages of this genre of media and give in to hopelessness. However, SFF continues to hold value by reminding us that we can lean on each other in hard times, and that joy is a necessary part of social change. Photo courtesy Nacho Juarez / Pexel.com
