Barrelhouse Conversations & Connections: Who We Write For

Who We Write For: Queer Writers On Their Intended Audience

In this panel, four queer writers discuss their ideal audience. Do we feel a responsibility to any community? Do we write for a queer or a non-queer audience? Questions of audience are complex for  any writer, but particularly for writers who are part of any marginalized group. There’s the broader question of whether we want to educate people who don’t share our (or parts of our) identity, or if we want people who do to feel seen. But the reasons behind who we write for are also highly personal. This will be a fascinating discussion amongst great, thoughtful writers.

Listen Up, Trans Witches 

An exercise in speaking powerful truths, this session is intended to provide space for trans and non-binary witches to share our stories of surviving in the interstices, of developing our practices while navigating gender and sexual identities in the “real” world. Where do we belong? How do we find our way to that place? Guided by a timer, each speaker may relate a story of exploration and magic. In the spirit of open exchange, this session is designed to be open to all who would like to listen, although we request that only trans and non-binary people speak during the session.

Reading with Amber Tamblyn

Reading with Amber Tamblyn

DjheomoW0AAXtyp.jpg

I'm reading with Amber Tamblyn, on her book tour stop at The Creative Alliance, hosted by the Ivy Bookshop!

WED AUG 1 | 7PM | FREE

Creative Alliance

3134 Eastern Ave, Balto, Maryland 21224

Lidia Yuknavitch. Roxane Gay. Carmen Maria Machado. Amelia Gray. Han Kang. By turning women’s bodies into a place of resistance, these pioneering feminist authors are rewriting how we understand trauma. Their influence can be found in Amber Tamblyn’s searing debut novel, ANY MAN– a groundbreaking work that challenges our understanding of rape culture and the experience of trauma, while also searching for hope – and a space for victims to be heard – in the darkest of places.

After writing a widely shared and lauded opinion piece for The New York Times, “I’m Done with Not Being Believed,” Amber Tamblyn has emerged as an important voice, writing about sexual assault and abuses of power. Now, the Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress, director, and poet uses the novel form to explore a provocative and haunting story of a violent serial predator who, in the form of a woman, is the personification of a culture responsible for re-traumatizing, disbelieving, and silencing the stories and voices of her victims.
