Whose Story is it? Authenticity, Sensitivity, Voice & Appropriation in Writing
Tuesday, April 10
The New School Auditorium (66 W. 12th St, New York City, NY 10011)
In today’s climate writers and their identities are more central to the conversation than ever before. Join panelists for a discussion on writing ethnicity, race, and culture in film and television and the “ifs, whens and hows” of writing voices that may not be your own. Writers will discuss tone, breaking stereotypes, the importance of research and the responsibility a writer has to their work and others.
