Update From the Author: September 2022

The Needs of the Few: Queering the Canon

Image Credit: StarTrek.com

Friends, family, fellow authors, and cherished readers,

I have stellar news to share. I recently had the honor and privilege of writing a piece for StarTrek.com! I’m a big believer in diversity and inclusion, and Star Trek has always boldly gone where no one has gone before in terms of representation.

I was overjoyed at the chance to give my thoughts on the enduring legacy of Star Trek and how it is moving into the 21st century and beyond with my latest article, “The Needs of the Few: Queering the Canon.

Feel free to share with your fellow Trekkies and sci-fi fans.

I am extraordinarily grateful for this opportunity. Star Trek was one of my first TV loves, and I adore it to this day. I follow Strange New Worlds and Discovery religiously and am very excited about where Prodigy is going.

And in case you’re wondering who my favorite Captain is, it’s Captain Pike. I really loved him in Discovery, and seeing him again in the captain’s chair of Strange New Worlds is such a treat.

Thank you to everyone who made this publication possible, and be sure to check out my updated Publications page.

May many joys lift you higher than the stars,

Caitlin Cacciatore


Advice I Wish People Had Given Me as a Young Author

Dedicated to every young person who loves language, literature, wordcraft, and writing. I know you’re out there. I know you’re listening. If you’ve found your way to this article, please consider the following advice carefully. Implement it religiously. It’ll save you a lot of time and aggravation, and when you are older, you will hopefully not be plagued by the same regrets I have.

Keep track of everything you write. Name it meticulously. File it meticulously. This will save you much trouble in the future. You know that masterpiece you just wrote? Fifteen years from now, the file name iwrotethiswhileiwasdreaming_final in a sub-folder labeled with the year and maybe a pencil emoji, if you’re lucky, might mean something to you, but more likely, it won’t. I am guilty of horrible file-keeping practices on my own computer. Don’t be me. Be yourself instead.

Keep track of every book you read. You will not regret this, and future historians will thank you if and when you become a best-seller. Your future self will thank you, too. This is a great way to keep track of what is inspiring you. Looking back many years from you, you will often see a correlation between what you read and what you write. For each book, keep track of the following metrics:

  • Date read
  • Title of Book
  • Author
  • Genre
  • Rating (out of 5, or 10, or some other consistent number)
  • Whether or not you’d recommend the book to a good friend
  • A short summary

Keep track of how many words you write. They tell you your first million words will be rubbish. They’re right. You’re young. You’ll recognize that feeling of grappling for the right words, a shiny new turn of phrase, the perfect metaphor for such and such a character as they fall in love, or worse, fall out of it. You’ll look for the perfect words to express just how the light glints off the water, or falls in dapple patterns beneath a beloved tree on a still and windless day. You’ll also recognize the frustration that arises when your words fall short. It gets better with time, I promise. And by time, I mean it gets better with practice. Lots of it. Write daily, if you can. Even if you are just journaling, get some words on a page.

When you are ready to send your work out into the world, keep careful track of where you submit to. You’ll want to mark off each time you are rejected (and you will get rejected) and you’ll want to know where to withdraw your simultaneously submitted work from when you inevitably get your very first acceptance, and the one after that, and the next one after that, etc. You can do this through an Excel spreadsheet, or through a service like Duotrope.

Let me know if this has helped you in any way!

Dear Cherished Friends, Family, Fellow Authors, and Beloved Readers,

It occurred to me that it’s been a while since I’ve written an ‘Update from the Author.’

I have been writing and submitting diligently, but while my river overflowed last year, this year, it has been a mere trickle. Some years are like that, I suppose, particularly in one’s early career.

I have been working on another original novel, this one much different from the trilogy I’d been working on for several years – which I’ve decided to put on the backburner for the time being.

My latest novel, whose working title is “In Darkness We Are Revealed,” is written in the genre of Futuristic Sci-Fi Dystopian Young Adult Romance, which seems to be a very specific and niche genre, but I’ve found that many recent books have successfully positioned themselves in this niche. What sets my novel apart from others in the genre is that it has strong undertones of what is known as cli-fi – the diminutive of ‘climate fiction.’

The very beginning of my synopsis for this project reads:

The year is 2282, and the printing of books has been banned for over two centuries by the Toyoko Treaty, which made large-scale changes to all aspects of life on Earth in the name of saving a warming planet.

Of the books published before 2080, only the Hundred and copies thereof survive. Books are too rare and valuable to lend out, but Saola, an 18-year-old-girl of Thai ancestry, has always wanted to be a librarian.

Her dream comes true when she finds herself in the Underground, the last remaining place on Earth where books are kept in large numbers. The only catch? No one leaves the Underground, ever.

Saola, pronounced ‘sow-la,’ is named after a critically endangered species of deer, on the premise that it becomes popular to name children after extinct species at some point in the future.

A little more about the saola deer, from the World Wildlife Foundation: “The actual size of the remaining population is unknown. Its rarity, distinctiveness and vulnerability make it one of the greatest priorities for conservation in the region. The current population is thought to be a few hundred at a maximum and possibly only a few dozen at a minimum.”

In all likelihood, this species does not have enough genetic diversity to reform a stable and sizable population. A recent estimate placed the rate of extinction at 200 species a day. As a poet, all I can do is spread awareness of this alarming number, and mark their passing in verse. I am once again reminded of Zbigniew Herbert’s concept of the “arithmetic of compassion.” An excerpt of “Mr. Cogito Reads the Newspaper” is displayed below.  

Allow me to sign off on a less somber note: Our dog, Muffin, will be celebrating her 15th birthday this summer. She is a happy dog, and so very sweet. She loves food, and would probably qualify topographically as a sphere if she ate any more of it. However much time we have left with her, we will cherish it.

May inspiration find you in unexpected places,

Caitlin Cacciatore

Dear Friends, Family, Fellow Authors, and Cherished Readers,

I am delighted to announce that Rebellious Magazine published my short essay, “The Case Against Fast Fashion: My Rebel Wardrobe.”

Please check it out, and feel free to share widely.

I feel strongly about this topic. Fast fashion is not only detrimental to the environment, but also to workers in the textile industry who get paid substandard wages for dangerous, monotonous work, or else are enslaved to do this self-same work. My colleague pointed out the human cost of fast fashion to me, so I feel compelled to include this addendum.

“My Rebel Wardrobe” is a call to all women, and indeed all folx, to abandon fast fashion, stop buying into the fashion machine’s latest trends, and vote with your dollars – for positive change in the fashion industry.

Thank you all for reading.

Cordially Yours,

Caitlin Cacciatore

Dear Friends, Family, Fellow Authors, and Cherished Readers,

The weather is growing colder, so perhaps it is apt that my poem, “Blizzard,” was recently published in Sylvia Magazine.

Please check it out, and consider sharing the link on social media.

The snowfall in question happened in late January 2021. I remember being in a dark place, when it was written – both literally, and metaphorically.

This poem was written at night, and the snow seemed to mock me as it fell. That cold was not a comfort.

But neither cold, nor winter, can long endure. The seasons will change; summer always comes again.

In other words, night lasts only until daybreak – so when you are faced with a mountain and see that the only way out is through, keep going.

I would like to extend my deepest and most sincere thanks and gratitude to Sylvia Magazine, who had faith enough in me to give “Blizzard” a home.

Please join me in celebrating my very first international publication!

In other news, I have been writing a futuristic young adult dystopian romance novel. More on that will be revealed in a future update, so stay tuned.

All the very best to you all this holiday season.

Happy Hanukkah, to those of you who celebrate!

Thank you, as always, for being here on these first legs of my writing journey!

Cordially yours,

Caitlin Cacciatore

Dear Friends, Family, Fellow Authors, and Cherished Readers,

So much has happened since my last update in Mid-May.

I am pleased to announce that I was accepted into CUNY Graduate Center’s Digital Humanities MA Program. I graduated from Baruch College and Macaulay Honors College summa cum laude, and was also the recipient of a number of awards, including a Susan A. Locke Award from Baruch and a Provost’s Award from Macaulay. It was a long, difficult journey, but I emerged stronger and more resilient. I am very grateful to Baruch, both for the education I received and all the brilliant and dedicated professors I met along the way who believed in me and supported and encouraged me in my academic and literary endeavors.

I am also proud to announce that I am the poetry genre winner of Fox Paw Literary’s first-ever contest!

“Savage Stars” was the poem selected as the genre winner, and another poem of mine, “Ode to Summer,” was short-listed as well, and will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal.

I’d like to extend my most heartfelt thanks to the editors and guest judges at Fox Paw Literary for believing in my work. As a relatively new voice on the literary scene, I am humbled and honored to have been chosen as the genre winner, and to be recognized in this manner.

And as an aside to anyone who needs it: “Savage Stars” was rejected not once, not twice, but TWELVE times by other literary journals and magazines. I like to think that at least 90 percent of the time, rejections aren’t an indicator of a poem’s or work’s worth, but a reflection of any number of other things: perhaps it simply didn’t resonate with the editor on that particular day; perchance the literary journal ran out of room or funds; or it just doesn’t fit in thematically, stylistically, etc. with the rest of the pieces that have been accepted.

I’ve learned not to take the vast majority of rejections personally, and I’ve also learned to have faith in my own work. If I believe a piece is objectively sound and genuine and reflects my values and showcases my literary prowess, I will keep submitting it to different journals until it finds its perfect home.

I hope this note finds you well and in good spirits.

May inspiration find you in unexpected places, today and always!

All the best,

Caitlin Cacciatore
