Join this Global Live Event hosted by Poly Pages on the topic of Polyamory in Publishing, Join our host Krista Varela Posell as she sits down with three polyamorous writers, authors and publishers - Mariana Ellery, Rachel Krantz, and Eve Rickert. This recording is 90mins.
Why is everyone in literature either monogamous or a cheater? With up to 20% of adults now engaging in a non-monogamous dynamic at some point in their life, and many dynamic relationship models available to authors - why is it so hard to find accurate portrayals of polyamory and non-monogamy within the stories that we read? Why is infidelity the more common representation of non-monogamy and what are some of the obstacles that writers face in trying to publish stigmatized stories about polyamory?
In this one-off live event, we discuss why polyamorous representation is important, why it’s missing, and how we as readers and writers can shape the demand for diversity in literature. Join M. Ellery, Rachel Krantz, and Eve Rickert in this global panel discussion, facilitated by Krista Posell. This event is coordinated by Poly Pages - an academic non-monogamous platform.
About the panelists:
Eve Rickert (she/her), author of More than Two, and owner of Thorntree Press. By night, Eve Rickert is the publisher at Thorntree Press, an indie press specializing in smart, forward-thinking books on sexuality and relationships, and the principal at Talk Science to Me, a publications consulting firm. By day, she runs the book program for a large Canadian museum.
Mariana Ellery (she/her), author of the children’s book with polyamorous parents represented A Color Named Love. She wants to be a non-monogamous mother in a world that shows kids all over the endless possibilities of love and allows them the freedom of choice. When talking with friends who are parents and also non-monogamous, she realized there weren't any children's books that portrayed a family similar to theirs. That's why she decided to bring to the world a story that not only her future kids would relate to, but many other kids and parents around the world. She successfully self-published the book in 2021, using a kickstarter platform.
