I’ve been writing for about as long as I can remember. I got my start writing zines and moved on to working for sites like BitchMedia, Autostraddle, The Establishment, and others. As of late, I’m working on a number of projects, but here’s an archive of my prior writings.
I have worked for SYFY WIRE FANGRRLS for some time and produced many, many pieces through that site, so there is quite an archive to be found here: https://www.syfy.com/author/sara-century
Some other articles I have done lately include:
A retrospective on Deanna Troi and empathy for StarTrek.com which you can find at https://www.startrek.com/news/the-radical-empathy-of-deanna-troi
Looking over the historical books of Karen Abbott https://www.bustle.com/p/in-karen-abbotts-books-the-spotlight-is-turned-to-incredible-women-in-us-history-18704130
A review of Michelle McNamara’s groundbreaking true-crime book https://blog.lareviewofbooks.org/reviews/obsession-tragedy-michelle-mcnamaras-ill-gone-dark/
A more personal essay on my connection with queerness and horror at the excellent Gayly Dreadful site https://www.gaylydreadful.com/blog/2019/5/27/do-you-sleep-pride-2019
Shelfdust did a series of essays in which 12 different women critics broke down the Watchmen chapter-by-chapter. I was lucky enough to draw the final chapter, but I recommend you read the entire series because it featured some of the great voices of modern comics criticism! https://shelfdust.com/?s=women+watch+the+watchmen
I interviewed my favorite artist Gilbert Hernandez about Love & Rockets! https://www.comicsmnt.com/?p=1652
ComicsMNT ran an epic series in which seven different critics took on the seven different mini-series of Grant Morrison’s Seven Soldiers of Victory crossover. I covered Mister Miracle. https://www.comicsmnt.com/?s=seven+critics+of+victory
All zines are 18+ and NSFW! They’re also usually more arty or funny than sexy but there is no question that there is adult subject matter under discussion, so please use responsibly.
