We understand the world through stories we tell ourselves, those others tell us, and those that entertain us, seeing ourselves in them even when they don’t contain people like us. My name is Charlie, and I write Scifi/fantasy as C. E. Dorsett. As a queer writer, I dive into the deep structure of the books, movies, and shows that we love, and would love to take you with me through our fandoms and the works I create. We will dive into these worlds to reveal unseen wonder, discuss theories, and contemplate the elements of good writing. If you have any questions or topics, share them with me.
