Editing Fiction Containing Gender-Neutral Pronouns

Every person has the right to choose the pronouns that align with their own sense of self. This has implications for fiction editors. Basing its examples on real works of fiction, the guide offers a wealth of options for working with gender-neutral pronouns. The guide includes: traditional and conscious-language approaches to pronouns; different narrative viewpoint styles and why they matter; how single- and multiple-pronoun universes work; acknowledging gender identity without pronouns; a comprehensive list of third-person gender-neutral pronouns; and how much explanation writers should give about the pronouns they’ve used.
