Magical Feminism: An Editorial Discussion (Video)



Electric Literature executive director Halimah Marcus talks to Marie-Helene Bertino (Parakeet, 2 A.M. at the Cat’s Pajamas, Safe as Houses) and Elissa Washuta (White Magic, My Body Is a Book of Rules, Shapes of Native Nonfiction) about coping with trauma and subverting expectations at the intersection of magic and reality. They discuss how magic works in practice and as a rhetorical device in fiction. Their conversation is followed by an audience Q&A.
