As we continue to grapple with uncertainty in our world, how can writers and creators build community and make an imprint? Whose voices get heard and how can we use craft to shape a new blueprint for the future? MacArthur Fellow and author of The City We Became N. K. Jemisin joined us virtually for a night of discussion and community in support of The Octavia Project, which fosters spaces of imagination and exploration for NYC teens, using speculative fiction to envision new futures. In a lively conversation with next generation of writers from The Octavia Project, Jemisin discussed what it means to be a storyteller, the challenge of working on one’s craft as a marginalized person, and the importance and power of building community.
