Brevity Special Issue: The Experience of Gender

The Experience of Gender is the theme of Brevity #49. This online issue of “concise literary nonfiction” features work from Kate Bornstein, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Ira Sukrungruang, Brian Doyle, Eunice Tiptree, Judy Bolton-Fasman, Sandra Gail Lambert, Cade Leebron, Deesha Philyaw, Jessica Hindman, Jody Keisner, Madison Hoffman, Mark Stricker, Samuel Autman, and Torrey Peters.

Guest Editors Sarah Einstein and Silas Hansen write, “These brief essays shine a light on the intersections of gender and race, sexuality, disability, faith, and social class, interrogate our strongly-held beliefs about what gender is and what it means, and show us how to embrace and celebrate gender fluidity.”

The Brevity craft section includes “Writing Trans Characters” by Pamela Alex DiFrancesco and memoirist Judy Hall’s “Balancing Act,” writing about her own transgender daughter tells readers, “But when it comes to writing about my children, there is another type of fear: I don’t want to screw it up.”
