In 2019, we received a submission of a novel for young adults about a homeschooling experiment, climate disaster, and plague. That novel was published in March 2020, before the world went to hell. Also that month, we accepted a novel dealing with essential workers in a time of catastrophe. Why are our creative writers so prescient? And when will the world heed our warning? We’ll gather a group of authors whose recent works have foretold crisis and explore ways to do better at listening to them.
