If you are a fellow Substack-er please add Waka Whetu to your library, this will also help us to find you and keep up to date on all of your work. This space will be rich, full, and diverse we would like recommendations on speculative fiction, speculative futures, sci/fantasy writers, authors, musicians, poets, and artists of all cultures. We are most interested in the stories that inspire the imagination and exploration of hopeful positive dreaming.
