The Founders and Editors of WriterWriter have released information on their upcoming Anthology Dark Dominion-A Fantasy Anthology.
WHAT IS DARK DOMINIONS?
The Founders and Editors of WriterWriter, Morgan Wright and David Collins, have assembled a group of emerging and award-winning fantasy authors alike to present you with an anthology consisting of 20 epic, dark and grimdark fantasy tales of fear, courage, love and sacrifice in worlds of death and tyranny.
Together with the stories, there will also be at least 10 striking black and white illustrations (depending on the stretch goals we hit, we'll be adding even more!!) by talented artists like Mike Cook, Michael Mitchell Jr., Nizar, William Zablocki Jr., Gillian Annandale and many more.
We are striving to launch a fantasy anthology that comes out with a BANG, an anthology that stands for something and means something.
This anthology is Dark Dominions.
One of the first of its kind to support Gender Equality.
50% of our authors are male and 50% of our authors are female.
Both genders are treated and paid equally (no preferential treatment).
The anthology features both strong male and strong female characters (no damsels-in-distress to be found here).
And last but not least, this anthology proves that women can write fantasy equally well as men, doing away with the gender bias against female writers in a male-dominated field.
WHY GENDER EQUALITY?
Because Gender Equality is something we're deeply passionate about. For generations people all over the world have been fighting for gender equality and yet we have still not achieved the point where we can say women are considered equals to men. Where women's voices are heard equally.
Gender inequality continues to plague our society- more so than most of us are aware. Across the world, time and time again, we see women being treated as inferior to men. You might find yourself thinking that in the modern society in which we live, women are treated as equals but, upon closer examination, you'll notice that isn't the reality of the matter.
Women in every industry and every country are still deemed less than men. This is most evident in the gender pay gap that still exists today. In the UK, women, on average, are paid 16% less than men across all industries and sectors. In the USA, this figure is closer to 20%.
In the 21st century, we owe it to ourselves and to future generations to live outside such stereotypes and institutionalised discrimination. We owe it to ourselves to make a change. And with your help, we can.
By supporting our Kickstarter, you are standing up with us against gender inequality and against injustice. You are giving a voice to all those women who have been on the receiving end of inequality all their lives and empowering them to keep fighting. Help us make our project a reality and stand with us in our effort to obliterate gender inequality altogether.
