Writing Human Characters Whether or Not THey're Actually Human

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Panelists discuss the challenges of writing relatable non-human characters that are both alien enough to be something more than funny-looking people but also human enough for a reader to relate to. How does the author create a science fiction or fantasy culture that is believable, yet is also relevant to human readers?
