Kinking Reality

A session at Webstock 2012

Thursday 16th February, 2012

4:00pm to 4:40pm (NZMT)

Fantastical storytelling is at its most potent when it's anchored to reality. Lauren Beukes talks about why she writes strange and twisty fiction from novels to comics to TV shows and the occasional ARG, and how storytelling that re-imagines where we are has the ability to tell us more about who we are. Short Q&A to follow.
