I’m excited to be presenting again this weekend – a Zoom workshop on writing queer characters. We’ll be doing some generative writing, talking about who is “allowed” to write what, and sharing insights. I want to make this as interactive as possible, but I don’t want anyone to feel compelled to share. It will be a safer space. If you’re interested in upping your queer character game and do some generative writing as well, please come check it out. Time is 11 AM CST/9 AM PST on Saturday, February 18th.
“Queer is a huge spectrum and with changing language around gender identity and orientation, there are so many avenues to explore when it comes to writing queer characters. In this workshop, queer trans author Finnian Burnett will explore the divide between own voices and inclusive writing. Part generative writing and part instruction, this workshop will give writers the tools and techniques they need to write characters outside of their own lived experiences. This workshop is appropriate for any writer of any experience level. Sharing will be encouraged, but not required.”
