Abstract

'The Unicorn' is a novella I created by researching and responsibly implementing real-world data in a creative project that also held personal meaning. The story was developed through a non-linear narrative and shows my growth as a creative writer. I chose to write about the possibility of time travel through the use of a black hole and the ways that this ripples through time, affecting all of humanity. I did this using a transgender and Jewish main character, both of which are important aspects of my own identity, developing further the canon of science fiction works that feature these marginalized identities. This presentation features the description of this writing and research process and a short reading excerpt from the final few sections of the novela that focus on the importance of representation of marginalized identities in literature.
