Author Announcement! Here's who Augur is committed to working with
There's just 15% left, Augurians.
Okay, but really—it's LESS than that. We have just $793 (CAD) to go before our first two years are funded.
We are so ready to jump into these next two years—so ready that, if funded, we'll open to submissions on October 1!
And hey. We're so excited that we got a head start.
We've committed to working with some *fabulous* Canadian speculative fiction authors. We're honoured to have them on board as we conquer our last days, and we're excited to feature them alongside all the creators and pieces we'll find in our glorious slush pile.
Now, let's offer them a warm welcome!

We are SO excited to work with these creators and to publish more of their fabulous work. BUT (you knew there was a but, didn't you?!) we can only do it if we cross the finish line. We're close, but not there yet, so remember that giving us a share or pledging towards our finish line goes a long way in making our next two years a reality.
Thanks for reading, Augurians! Keep an eye out for tomorrow—we've got more personal essays coming your way!
