Coming Up Aces is one of Queership’s columns, and it includes articles, essays, and question & answers about asexuality and writing ace characters. Questions or article suggestions can be submitted using the form below or by emailing me at Erica@queership.com. Submissions will be answered in the column at my discretion, but I will also answer shorter questions on Twitter using the #ComingUpAces tag.
Questions can be about anything related to the asexuality spectrum (relationships, psychology, definitions, vocabulary, etc) or about writing characters who identify on this spectrum. If you’re writing an ace character and have specific questions about language use or a character’s actions within a single scene, feel free to paste a short clip from the work into the question box. Please bear in mind that I will only be able to critique these every so often due to time constraints.
Thank you for helping me continue and grow the conversation about asexuality!
