FWG Monthly Newsletter: April 2022

No fools, jokes, or misleads here – just another monthly update from the Furry Writers Guild!

In the coming weeks we will start pushing forward with dates and information about the guild elections. If you are considering standing for any of the guild member roles, including president or vice-president, then please make a post of intention in the forums.

The writing awards are drawing closer. The Ursa Major Awards have already closed for voting, with the winners expected to be announced in around one month.

This will also be about when the Coyotl Awards will be announced, with the awards ceremony taking place at FurDU. The ceremony will be livestreamed at 2pm on Saturday 30th April, AEST. This should be 9pm Friday Pacific Time.
There are still two weeks left for voting in the Coyotls, so guild members are encouraged to cast your votes as soon as you can!

March 31st was an important day for a large part of our community. Trans Day of Visibility is a reminder that there are many trans people around the world who still face significant oppression, and deserve to have the spotlight shined on them for some positive exposure. They deserve our support, not just for one day, but all through the year.

Through Twitter, we asked trans furry authors to share their work, with the hope they can reach a larger audience. We hope readers will check out our tweet, and the many replies we received. Your new favourite author might be amongst them!


There are a few ongoing submission calls for short stories, though we have not seen many themed anthology calls at this stage. If you see something that you think can be highlighted by the FWG, then please contact us with information about it!

FURVOR #1 – Deadline Around March
Isekai Me! – Deadline When Full
