Who We Are

A complex identity cannot be codified into the singular. On this site, you will find dramatis personae as contributors, each of whom reveals her own experience, expertise, and unique perspective. Each voice exists autonomously and together, they form a collective of wise contradiction.

The literary concept of the heteronym refers to one or more characters created to write in different styles. Heteronyms differ from pen names (or pseudonyms deriving from Greek words for “false” and “name”) because each of the heteronyms has their own physiques, biographies, and writing styles. Each voice is a practitioner in her own right.
