Writing Transgender and Non-Binary Characters
October 15, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
6 Thursdays from 6:00pm-9:00pm, starting October 15th, 2020 via Zoom
If you’re a cisgender fiction writer who wants to do their best job with their transgender or non-binary character, this course will provide you with best approaches to the craft and representing your character, proper research techniques, feedback on relevant excerpts, and a stronger knowledge of the transgender/non-binary community. This six-week class includes craft lessons, workshops, readings, and exercises to give cisgender students a rich understand of writing transgender and non-binary characters, as well as direct and active feedback on students’ relevant excerpts, plot points, and/or novel outlines. Lessons will include tropes, character arcs, PoV, endings, research, sensitivity readers, avoiding (and handling) backlash, and more. Resources about writing the marginalized may include C. Riley Snorton, C.N. Lester, Peter Ho Davies, Chris Castellani, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Don’t be shy! This course was designed to encourage cisgender fiction writers at any stage in their writing process to do their best and help them better connect with themselves and the trans/NB worlds around them.
