Dear Sidequest readers,
When Women Write About Comics was founded in 2011, no one expected it to become Bleating Heart Blogs, a group of over one hundred volunteer writers and editors branching beyond comics into zines, books, movies, television, and games. In November, the gaming section branched into a sister site called Sidequest. Now, we’re delighted to say that we’re spreading our draconian wings to venture out on our own.
Sidequest’s former managing editor Naseem Jamnia used to do sciencey things, but they now slam their keyboard and call it art. Their debut novella, THE BRUISING OF QILWA, introduced their queernorm, Persian-inspired secondary world; their middle grade horror debut SLEEPAWAY comes out in 2025.
