Gender Benders: Exploring the "Other"

Sunday, August 4 - 1:00 PM


Convening a community of writers to discuss what it means to create believable female and male characters is more important now than ever. And it takes courage to write from a different POV. We risk criticism. As gender roles shift, as writers question their characters’ gender more closely, who knows, maybe we’ll see emotional females in heroic roles, daringly rescuing indifferent males, but, no, what we want for our characters is emotional truth—and that’s different for every character, every situation, regardless of gender/sex.
