Women in SFF 2022 Week 2 WRAP UP
Welcome to our second Women in SFF wrap up post!
We’ve reached the end of our second week, and as we said last week, every year we are always so humbled and grateful to see the love for this feature. It’s been another fantastic week!
Each week, we’ll try and round up all this wonderful content into one summary-wrap-up post – if we’ve missed you, please comment and link below! We’d love to see the ways you’re taking part.
So, what have you all been up to…?
