Genre enthusiasts--creators and fans alike--have established affinities for franchises built around certain tropes and character arcs that are usually centered on a male perspective.

A group of seasoned genre content female writers will discuss their approach to creating fresh narratives for a continually growing--and diverse--audience that breaks existing paradigms and broaden POVs in the space, and inspire a lineup of more diverse creators for the future.
