Will Shetterly (born 1955) is an American writer of fantasy and science fiction best known for his novel Dogland (1997). The novel is inspired by his childhood at the tourist attraction Dog Land owned by his parents. He won the Minnesota Book Award for Fantasy & Science Fiction for his novel Elsewhere (1991), and was a finalist with Nevernever (1993); both books are set in Terri Windling's The Borderland Series shared universe. He has also written short stories for various Borderland anthologies.
He is married to author Emma Bull. The couple live in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and were both members of the writing group The Scribblies, which also included, Pamela Dean, Kara Dalkey, Nate Bucklin, Patricia Wrede and Steven Brust. Shetterly and Bull created and edited the Liavek shared universe anthologies.
Shetterly popularized the term "social justice warriors" in 2009 in his blog "Social Justice Warriors: Do Not Engage", by contrasting them with "social justice workers", the former being more extreme people who "rage, mob and dox in the belief that promoting identitarianism [I.e., identity politics] will make a better world.".[non-primary source needed]
