Next week I'll be part of a panel on a subject very dear to me: "What Is Ethnic Writing?" How, as writers, do we infuse our stories with the authenticity of culture without overdoing the ethnic elements of our work? How do we bring to the fore our thoughts on our backgrounds and experiences-- from race-related ones to sexuality-related ones and beyond-- while keeping our stories true, assured, and thought-provoking?
Come discuss these questions and more with me, fellow panelists Pablo Medina and Adam Stumacher, and moderator Jenn De Leon. The panel is Wednesday, October 23, from 6pm-8pm, the 3rd floor of Grub Street headquarters. It's free--just click here to register and learn more about the panel and participants.
Hope to see you there!
