Thanks to the very supportive speculative fiction writer community online, I'm now aware that anything published in 2021 is eligible for awards season! I'm still brand new to this and don't completely understand it, but since I had my very first fiction publication this year, I'm creating this post to share on Twitter.
Speculative Short Story publication - August 2021: "Yoko and the Sunbeam Garden" by Meg Murray in the anthology GROWTH from TL;DR Press.
