The curse of gender – do men and women read and write differently? Russell Blackford, Donna Hanson (chair), Keith Stevenson, Alisa Krasnostein
And this is the one I am pondering about. Do men and women read and write differently? I was thinking about it in the shower - where I do all my good thinking - and I realised that Trent Jamieson is the only male author we have published in Shiny, twice actually, and I'm pretty sure both the protagonists were female. We had the gay love story in Issue 3, but written by a female author. So it makes me wonder whether female writers and stories are what appeal to me more as a reader?
