Free, Online & Panel

AI: T/truth

In this pre-recorded panel, three trans/queer writers discuss the complex connections between Truth, genre, and identity within their own work. Combining theory, genre-bending experimentation, and the mundane absurdity of their everyday lives, these writers consider the intersections of form and content along lines of race and gender, and talk about how these relationships effect their own writing

The online event will be broadcasted on the Emerging Writers Festival Youtube Channel.
