Whether a writer is intentionally setting out to incorporate queerness to their cast of characters, or they’re telling a story that happens to feature an LGBTQ character, the whole idea of representing queer diversity might be intimidating. What are a writer’s responsibilities when it comes to representing a queer character in their fiction? What is to be avoided? And once the work is out in the world—what happens when a writer gets called out for their portrayal of a queer character? This workshop aims to prepare writers without in-depth knowledge of queer and gender studies to cast queer characters in their stories—and to feel confident about doing so.
