I spent last week as the “professional connection” on the Long Ridge Writers Group forum, fielding questions about writing in general and Book View Cafe in particular. It was a challenging week, but I was pleased to find that people were interested in what we’re doing on Book View Cafe.
Since I’m known for talking about feminist science fiction — I’m published by Aqueduct Press, have spoken on the subject at the Library of Congress, and had an online interview about feminist SF posted in both English and Spanish — I raised the topic on the forum. Some of the responses were a little unsettling and forced me to think carefully about how to reply effectively.
Here’s a transcript of my week of conversation.
Many thanks to Mary Rosenblum, who invited me to participate and to Long Ridge for providing the forum.
