About the Event
In this workshop: How do you use fiction to create a historical moment and setting that feels really rich and real? How do you do this for queer and trans characters? How do you conduct historical research, what resources should you use, and where do you start? Author EE Ottoman explores what world-building looks like when creating a queer or trans historical romance novel.
About the Speaker: EE Ottoman grew up surrounded by the farmlands and forests of upstate New York. He started writing as soon as he learned how and has yet to stop. Ottoman attended Earlham College and graduated with a degree in history, before going on to receive a graduate degree in history as well and a degree in library science. These days he divides his time between history, archiving and writing.
Ottoman is also a queer, trans man. Mostly though he is a person who is passionate about history, stories and the spaces between the two.
