This weekend, I attended Novacon 50. In addition to being Britain’s longest-running Science Fiction Convention, it also has a massive number of attendees who are authors, writers, and publishers. I volunteered to hold a workshop there based around representation, and writing LGBTQ+ characters even if the author may have been afraid to before. The aimContinue reading “Representation Matters- Discussion Workshop”
