I will be presenting at the FWA Writer's Conference in October 17-20. You can click here to register or here for a schedule of events! I will Have 3 topics to discuss which will highlight my background in psychology and my time in and around the disabled community. They are listed below in no particular order.
1) Creating Characters with Disability
2) Once More with Feeling: Depression, Anxiety and Mental Health in Literature
3) Psychology of Villains
I am posting my power point slides here so you may get a feel for what to expect in my discussions. I don't just "read my slides". We have on-going discussions about the topic in class but this gives a good understanding of where we are headed. I hope to see you there!
