10 More Sites for Aspiring Writers

I’m back, scrubs!!! Did you miss me? Well, I missed you all (kinda, sorta, you know what Imma stop lyin’). Since I made my first post about websites to look into if you’re aspiring to write on this here Internet I’ve come across many more that are looking to publish writers of color specifically in both fiction and non-fiction, and I’m going to share them with you all.

Alphabetical order, just like last time, and the small quotes underneath the site banners are taken from each respective sites About pages.

We are a volunteer collective of LGTBQ+ and POC writers dedicated to exploring videogames, comics, anime, and pop culture from an intersectional perspective.

We love art, and how it impacts our viewpoints is important. Movies, comics, and games of all kinds have the potential to shape who we are, and we want to discuss that from a lens that takes into account the interests of marginalized voices. That said, all allies are welcome to pitch for Cocoa Controller.

I blog about things on this here blog that you're reading right now. Things like movies, food, anime, whatever grabs my attention. I'm big into pop culture criticism, so that's mostly what you're going to get here, but I also write short fiction as well as fan fiction, so I may share that with you all some day.
