Writing Positive Portrayals of Asexual Characters | Writing the Other Master Class
Writing the Other
Since the movement for asexual visibility has become more widespread, people have begun to demand more openly asexual characters in popular media. However, too many creators are trying to write asexual characters without doing any research or talking to asexual people. This results in incredibly damaging and stereotypical asexual characters.
In this master class, asexual author Lauren Jankowski walks students through the general terminology related to the asexual spectrum, discusses the importance of dismantling the love hierarchy, and provides tips for avoiding common stereotypes of asexuals.
