Nina Munteanu and Solarpunk!

SF Canada member Nina Munteanu’s article “Why Eco-Fiction Will Save the World–from Cli-Fi to Solarpunk” appeared this month in the inaugural issue of Solarpunk Magazine.
Solarpunk’s podcast “Solarpunk Futures” recently did an interview with Nina entitled “Imagining A New World” in which they talked about water, blurring the lines between fiction and nonfiction and the idea of an author’s responsibility to their community of readers.
Congratulations, Nina!
