Writing Transgender Characters

April 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

1-hour seminar via Zoom

With demand for transgender and non-binary narratives on the rise, more cisgender (non-trans/NB) people are adding trans and NB characters to their stories. But what can you do to make sure you’re providing accurate representation? In this session, we will explore the “Three E’s” of wanting to write a trans/NB character (empathy, education, and empowerment), the best craft approaches for each, and their potential pitfalls. We’ll also go over inappropriate reasons to write a trans/NB narrative, general do’s and don’ts, and an overview of the experiences most often used incorrectly in stories.

This event is only available to Muse & the Marketplace attendees. You can register HERE.
