Writing Intersectional Identities
Is it okay to write about people of other genders, races and identities? And how do I do this responsibly?
Whether you are working in fiction, poetry, drama or creative non-fiction, becoming conscious of how you represent people of different social identities is one of the most important responsibilities you have as a writer. This is the first practical guide to thinking and writing reflectively about these issues.
Organised in an easy-to-use A to Z format for practicing writers, teachers and students, Writing Intersectional Identities covers such key terms as: Appropriation, Authenticity, Counternarrative, Disability, Essentialism, Gender, Power, Privilege, Representation
The book is meant for writers of fiction, poetry, screenplays and creative non-fiction who are seeking to develop a writing practice that is attentive to the world.
