WGS @ Work Series Presents: Come Talk with Cat Sebastian about her latest novel

March 26 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

March 26th, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Neville Hall Rm 208

Come talk with Cat Sebastian about her latest novel, We Could Be So Good (2023) and also more broadly, writing for the romance novel industry! Cat will discuss questions such as but not limited to: What draws her to the romance genre in particular? What limits and/or opportunities does the romance genre open up for queer romance narratives? What did she learn about the genre and romance industry when writing (and pitching) her first novel to agents? How has Cat’s writing changed over time and in response to her success with earlier novels? What role/s do readers play in Cat’s decisions as an author? What continues to excite Cat most about the romance genre? Has she ventured outside the romance genre, and if so, why? Tea/coffee and cookies will be served! No advance registration necessary! 

This WGS at Work event is part of the Dr. Ann Margaret Johnstone Lecture Series. Dr. Johnstone was the first tenure-track woman faculty member in the computer science program at the University of Maine. The Lecture Fund in Johnstone’s name was established by her friends and family in 1996, and as a gift for computer science (in odd years) and WGS (in even years). Johnstone was a poet and writer who had a love for Women’s Studies (as it was then called), and the lecture fund is intended to support women’s efforts across all disciplines in creative expression.
