The Power of Joy in Queer Literature
With Tara Sim, Michelle Osgood, Candice Montgomery, CB Lee, Corinne Duyvis and Taylor Brooke
Mar 02, 2018, 5:15 PM – 6:15 PM WSCC 603

Positive representation is not only validating, it can be life affirming. Queer representation has moved beyond mere inclusion to many types of stories, but there’s still work to do. Stories such as romance and genre fiction are often trivialized as fluff, but these types of stories that bring joy are especially important for a queer audience. Join authors as they discuss what it means to be happy, loved, and brave on the page. More Information

Say It On The Page!

With Ziggy Schutz, Michelle Osgood, LM Pierce, CB Lee and Taylor Brooke
Mar 03, 2018, 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM WSCC 603

Tired of wondering “are they or aren’t they” about your favorite characters? While labels don’t work for everyone in real life, a character’s identity being clear and present on the page is incredibly important, especially for readers looking to find themselves represented in fiction. Join authors as they discuss the importance of LGBTQ+ characters being present and visible in books, and how they write these characters and identities in their own works.
