Valentine's Day is coming up, so this fortnight co-hosts Jane Bradley and Paul Forster share their fictional character crushes, including....
- Zillah from Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite
- Gideon from Teacher's Pet by Richie Tankersley Cusick
- Vincent Smith from The Singer by Cathi Unsworth
- Trent Lane from Daria (written by Susie Lewis)
- Fast girls from Cars & Girls and Riding in Cars with Girls by Evangeline Jennings
- The Weasley twins from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
(Like we mentioned last time, although our main remit is writing by women, in 2017 and beyond we intend to expand our focus to include more writers who identify as trans, genderqueer, genderfluid and/or non-binary. That's why we've continued to discuss and include work by Billy Martin written under the name and identity of Poppy Z. Brite.)
Honorable mentions: Our very own erotica collection, Tongue in Cheek.
In a Room of One's Own, Rebecca Smith interviews Kirsty Logan on her writing locations, habits and processes, as well as her own fictional character fangirling.
