Fatima R. Henson Wins the STEP Contest

In an effort to address the publishing industry’s lack of diverse voices, She Writes Press and SparkPress launched the She Writes Press and SparkPress Toward Equality in Publishing (STEP) contest in 2018 to offer two female authors of color a publishing package to publish on either She Writes Press or SparkPress.

In its fourth contest year, and after reading through almost 70 phenomenal manuscript submissions—SparkPress selected Fatima R. Henson’s sci-fi novel, Love in the Age of Dragons, as one of the three 2021 winners.

Fatima R. Henson will publish on the SparkPress Fall 2022 season with her winning book Love in the Age of Dragons.
