Hopepunk with Writers Renan Bernardo, Brianna Castagnozzi, Susan Kaye Quinn, and T. K. Rex
Do you wish you felt more hopeful about the state of our world? Then you'll want to hear from Renan Bernardo, Brianna Castagnozzi, Susan Kaye Quinn, and T. K. Rex—they're writing hopepunk stories that challenge us to look up from our doomscrolling and envision a future filled with defiant optimism!

About the Panelists:
Renan Bernardo is a sci-fi and fantasy writer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He has stories published in multiple languages and magazines, including Apex Magazine, Solarpunk Magazine, Podcastle, and Daily Science Fiction.

Brianna Castagnozzi is the co-editor-in-chief of Solarpunk Magazine. Her work has been published in Stonesthrow Review, Shawangunk Review, Entropy, and Clarkesworld.

Susan Kaye Quinn is an environmental engineer/rocket scientist turned speculative fiction author who now uses her PhD to invent cool stuff in books. She writes hopepunk climate-fiction full-time and believes being cozy/gentle/healing is radical and disruptive. Sue's hopepunk can be found in DreamForge magazine and Grist's Imagine 2200 contest.

T. K. Rex is a science fiction and fantasy author of mostly British and Ashkenazi descent, raised by witches in the western states and currently pretending to be a Silicon Valley tech worker for purely research purposes and not at all because she still owes $40,000 in student loans. You can find her mostly non-cynical, mostly climate-themed stories in Strange Horizons, Asimov's, Reckoning, and elsewhere.
