And my first book on Substack
The term cli-fi was alien to me until I read Kim Stanley Robinson's novels. Most recently The Ministry for the Future - highly recommended, by the way.
Hello from a fellow speculative writer! I'm so excited to read your stories and updates and see how your journey unfolds. 💖 I think it's so important to create stories about re-visioning this mess our world is in--both to see to the truth, and to bring some hope back to our thoughts about the future. I can't wait to read your additions to the canon.
I have never read (or considered reading) stories about climate change, but this sounds promising and exciting! Looking forward to reading some of this when I get a moment!
This all sounds fantastic, really excited to read more. Can I ask, you mentioned your MA, I’ve been considering doing something similar, how did you find it?
Excellent overview and interesting subject matter. Keep up the great work, Claudia!!
Cli-Fi you say! This is an unknown genre to me. Happy to hitch my cart to your wagon and enjoy the ride!
So happy to have stumbled across this via your comment earlier today. I'm really excited to see this journey evolve and can't wait for the first story from There Is Hope.
This was an excellent, insightful and sincere article that puts everything in context.
First time I've come across the term Cli-Fi, but I hope to see that used more.
I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!!!!
Thanks for outlining your writing journey! Looking forward to reading those stories.
From the books I read with a strong climate element I remember The Windup girl quite vividly. Also, the recent movie Vesper (co-produced in Lithuania and shot in Lithuanian swamps) might be an interesting watch for you.
