Brilliant heart-tugging essay

The Unbearable Solitude of Being an African Fangirl

Striking, illuminating, and poignant. The author, Chinelo Onwualu, is a young Nigerian author, graduate of the Clarion West Writers Workshop (more proof, if any were needed, that Clarion is the gold standard for speculative fiction writers). You can read one of her stories here on Ideomancer: Tasting Gomoa

Thanks for posting this link. This is really useful reading. Our favourite characters deserve the love of ALL their fans, and it's such a pity that fandom drowns out some voices that don't fit a certain mould.
