Representation in Sci-Fi and Horror
J. Askew believes in more representation in sci-fi and horror. She is an advocate for more women, and more LGBTQ+ people in these genres. Sci-fi has always pushed boundaries and shown audiences a new way of seeing the world. Expanding on this by supporting more underrepresented authors is a passion for J. Askew.
