Non-Binary Authors You Need to Be Reading

Non-Binary Authors

Recently, I noticed that as I looked for more novels by non-binary authors, I really couldn’t find any. I wanted to create a list of non-binary authors that I know, so I sent out a tweet on twitter that asked for name, pronouns, a link to their work, and, if they wanted to, their gender ID. As of right now, there’s about 47 authors on this list, and I still want to add more. Comment if you want to be added, and I hope you all enjoy this list, and possibly find a new favorite author! (I know I’ve found a few I’m very interested in!)
