Climbing Lightly Through Forests, the Ursula Le Guin tribute poetry anthology, has been delayed, but it is moving forward. Unfortunately, I had many health setbacks this winter and spring, and have fallen behind on submissions. I needed help, and so I asked Lisa M. Bradley to join me as the project co-editor, and Lisa kindly agreed. I have worked with Lisa before in various capacities, and I am so excited about this collaboration.

Here’s Lisa’s short bio:

A queer Tejana raised on the Texas-Mexico border, Lisa M. Bradley now lives in Iowa with her spouse and their teenager. Her speculative fiction and poetry explore boundaries and liminal spaces: real, imagined, and metaphorical. Her work has appeared in Sunvault: Stories of Solarpunk and Eco-Speculation, The Moment of Change: An Anthology of Feminist Speculative Poetry, and her first collection, The Haunted Girl. Online, her work has been published by Uncanny, Strange Horizons, and Fireside Magazine. In her debut novel, EXILE, a determined antiheroine schemes to escape her quarantined bordertown.

You are welcome to learn more about Lisa by visiting or checking out her Twitter account, @cafenowhere.

We are moving forward with our decisions on the remaining shortlisted submissions; we hope to have your patience for a little while longer.

    I just found out about this anthology. May I please tender a submission at the 11th hour? It is titled “Leaving Atlantis”

    LeGuin was one of my favorite writers and favorite people, and I frequently assigned her stories to my students.

      I’m so sorry, Chris – I just saw this comment…Unfortunately, we closed to submissions in 2018 – sadly we won’t be able to review more submissions for this project; but I hope your poem finds a great home soon.
