Activist behind promotion of cli-fi literary genre finds wind knocked out of sails by media's focus on the global pandemic, leaving cli-fi out in the cold (for the time being))

For cli-fi activist Dan Bloom the sudden arrival of the Covid-19 Virus in early 2020 turned the media's attention to the pandemic and temporarily sidelined the popular new literary genre, he says.

In a recent statement to the media, Bloom said:

"Interest in the cli-fi has not disappeared, but with the pandemic filling headlines worldwide, media interest in the rise of cli-fi has left the genre out in the cold, so to speak. But it will come back eventually, since climate change is still doing its thing in hundreds of countries. It's just a matter of time before cli-fi comes roaring back, with new novels and movies."
