Panel – with Danica Novgorodoff
The Mary Sue Presents – Fight What You Know
Time: 2:15 PM – 3:00 PM
Location: Room 1A14
Description: The geek world needs better representation in media, but aren’t you supposed to write what you know? Truth is, the whole “write what you know” thing is a load of bull honkey. A writer who can’t appreciate the perspectives of others is no kind of writer at all. Writers from all backgrounds and experiences join to talk about research, listening, soliciting criticism, and how to make sure you’re writing well when you’re outside the comfort zone of your own perspective.
