Speculative Fiction | S02E06

Welcome to the sixth episode of the second season of the Unknown Studio! I promise I’ll think of a new and exciting way to intro our shows soon. For now, you get a well-tested formula. 😛

This episode, we interview OnSpec Editors Diane Walton (managing editor) and Susan MacGregor (fiction editor). And in case you don’t know all about On Spec, you can peep their website, or read this:

Our quarterly journal ‘On Spec’ adheres to a strong mandate that has served us well over the years. We discover and showcase quality works by predominantly Canadian writers and artists, in the genre we call “Fantastic” literature. We foster the growth of emerging writers in this genre, by offering support and direction through constructive criticism, education, mentoring, and manuscript development.

Something else you might not know about On Spec: author and BoingBoing editor Cory Doctorow had one of his first works published there!

It’s true! After so much joking and tongue-in-cheek referrals to Edmonton’s newspaper of record on our show, the Edmonton Journal decided to put their money where our mouths are, by sponsoring the Unknown Studio this month!
