Join Kate Elliott, Vida Cruz, Piper J Drake, Rebecca Roanhorse, and Shveta Thakrar in a virtual discussion on using and creating mythologies
The Carl Brandon Society presents Mythology and Speculative Literature with authors Kate Elliott, Vida Cruz, Piper J Drake, Rebecca Roanhorse, and Shveta Thakrar as they discuss using and creating mythologies. The virtual panel occurs on Friday July 24, 9PM EDT/6PM PDT.
Mythology is a rich vein for writers to mine when it comes to making new stories. But what are some dead angles that writers have when it comes to mythology? How do you build new ones with depth? How can writers handle retellings to make them truly new? How do you go about integrating existing mythologies into your work in a respectful way, or should you do that at all?
Join science fiction and fantasy authors Vida Cruz, Piper J Drake, Kate Elliott, Rebecca Roanhorse, and Shveta Thakrar as they dig into how they answer these questions with their own work and research.
This panel will be livestreamed to YouTube on the 24th.
