Authors are sometimes accused of not being able to write the other gender. It’s not uncommon for a male writer to be chastised for writing a female character that doesn’t ‘feel real’ or for a female writer to be told her male protagonist is effeminate. Do we need to be in a different mind space to be able to write a believable character who is a different gender than ourselves? And what about transgender or gay characters? On Writing Wednesday, March 25, 2015 we’ll talk about writing the other gender with moderator Robyn McIntyre.
