Writing Past Stereotypes: Gab & Party

Who are Fu Manchu, Jezebel, The Dragon Lady, Carmen Miranda, and Mammy?  What differentiates a complex literary character from one who feels reliant on a "type"?  When was the first time you saw your own name appear in a book, and what was that character like?  Join GrubStreet for a frank and dynamic discussion about common cultural representations in books, past and present-- including Asian, African-American, Latino, Native American, LGBT, and more.  Then, we'll do practical exercises to practice blowing past stereotypes in our own work.  We'll have a lively talk followed by food, drinks, and music.  For writers looking to write from a more deeply informed place, and also to have a damn good time.
