‘Yale Climate Connections’ champions ‘cli-fi’ literary genre

“Burning Worlds” is Amy Brady’s monthly column dedicated to examining current trends in climate change fiction, or “cli-fi,” in partnership with Yale Climate Connections at Yale University.

As the new literary genre of cli-fi gathers steam worldwide, the Yale Climate Connections website is getting into the act as well. In her first piece to launch a monthly cli-fi trends column earlier this year, New York literary critic Amy Brady ran a general introductory Q&A article about the rise of cli-fi, with some “reading suggestions” for those who wanted to explore several varieties of cli-fi literature. The Yale Climate Connections website reprinted her column as well.

Edited by veteran journalist and journalism educator Bud Ward, YCC provides content developed by a network of experienced independent freelance science journalists, researchers, and educators. Each month now, the YCC website reprints Brady’s cli-fi literary column from the Chicago Review of Books as a partnership with the YCC editors.
