Steampunk CommuniTea Weekend Special Guest Author and Publisher
Since 2010, Mocha Memoirs Press has worked diligently to ensure the representation of marginalized voices in speculative fiction. Whether your thing is science fiction, fantasy, romance, or even horror — everyone deserves to see themselves represented in speculative fiction. When every voice is heard and we all feel seen, we have better stories to read and more opportunities to grow together as a human family.
Author, Editor, and Educator Nicole Givens Kurtz founded Mocha Memoirs Press to address inequities in publishing and provide a platform for other voices normally marginalized by mainstream publishing. Mocha Memoirs Press is the proud publisher of several groundbreaking anthologies, creating the framework for an inclusive and diverse community of voices. From the Horror Writers Association of America to the Outer Dark Symposium and Blacktasticon, Mocha Memoirs Press works actively to build bridges between underrepresented communities and the broader speculative fiction universe.
