The on-going mission of Luna Station Quarterly is to display the vast and varied talents of female speculative fiction writers.
This idea was conceived by founding editor, Jennifer Parsons, after spending time in the trenches of the Star Wars fan fiction community and being exposed to the particular and unique writing styles of the women and girls who posted there.
Later departing from the community to write original fiction, Jennifer became aware of the apparent lack of support for the short story format within the literary community, and the particular lack of exposure of new female writers in general within speculative fiction.
After tickling at Jennifer’s brain for a few years, the time became right for this concept to come to fruition, and the result is the site you are reading now.
In January 2011, Evan Pettit joined the staff, and Cheryl Ruggiero joined in June 2012, both as Assistant Editors, aiding Jennifer as Luna Station Quarterly continues to grow. 2013 saw the addition of Iona Sharma, Megan Kaleita, and Andi Marquette, as well as Danielle Perry filling the role of Editorial Assistant. (We also had Elizabeth Thurmond on staff for a brief time and we’re grateful for her help)
