Latinx voices continue to be underrepresented in publishing. We collectively strive to elevate writers of our cultural community by creating and holding space for the authentic and diverse voices that make up Dominican writers today.
Quislaona welcomes you to the fantasy island where the water glows with magic, and the Loro flies high. Run alongside the ciguapas protecting the island's sacred hearts or listen to the merfolk chat at Mimi's Bar. Within this collection, you will find twenty-four creators who contributed stories taking place on this fantasy island through a mix of prose and comics. Inside, you'll discover tales of war, heartbreak, family, and magic.
This anthology is a collaborative effort between three organizations. Dominican Writers Association, Worldbuilding Magazine, and Cultura Cómic RD. Discover how this fascinating intersection of art, literature and speculative fiction became a celebration of Dominican voices in fantasy.
