So: question for people with marginalized identities (of any sort).

We're currently putting together the monster anthology submissions call, and we want to include a segment encouraging submissions from marginalized creators, but aren't entirely sure how to word it.

So I guess my question is: any advice? Things you've seen before that really worked for you, or really *didn't* work? And, if you don't mind sharing, why?


It's probably worth mentioning that all the core editorial team have various marginalized identities that are... I guess not expressed explicitly, but at least implied in our bios (e.g. via our names, the sorts of stories we write, etc.). So part of the issue is we all know what would work (or not work) for each of us personally... and those experiences don't wholly mesh. Hence seeking other input/ideas.
