Introducing Genre for Japan

We’ve all listened to the news, and seen the horrific pictures from Japan in the aftermath of the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami – and no doubt we’ve all wondered how to help.

Following the example of Authors for Japan, we’d like to introduce Genre for Japan, a chance for the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comics communities to unite and show our generosity to those who need it right now.

We are planning to run auctions for SFF-themed prizes and need YOU to donate. We are looking for special prizes: examples might include signed first editions, coaching sessions with agents for that perfect submission letter, artwork and many more!

If you have something to donate, please drop us a line at genreforjapan@gmail.com including whether you wish to send the prize to a central collecting point or would be willing to send it to the winning bidder.

The deadline to receive offers of prizes is 25th March with the auction set to begin on 28th March.

About Genre for Japan

Set up by a group of genre fans & professionals, our aim is to raise money for the BRC's Japan Tsunami appeal by auctioning special items donated by the SFF field.
