In narratives about international conflict, women writers, and those identifying as women, are marginalized and grossly underrepresented. Exposing their lack of visibility and peeling back the layers of privilege is the goal of Consequence magazine’s tenth anniversary issue, and we’ve dedicated our Spring 2018 issue to women writers. In this panel, we’ll talk to four writers who write about the culture and consequences of war and activism, and how they see writing as a path to peace.


Catherine Parnell, senior associate editor for Consequence magazine, is an independent consultant and teacher. Her nonfiction chapbook, The Kingdom of His Will, explores the culture of war, and her publications include blog posts, reviews, interviews, essays and stories.

Jasmin Darznik is the author of the novel Song of a Captive Bird and a memoir, The Good Daughter. She is a professor of writing and literature at California College of the Arts.

Max Frazier recently retired from her role as senior military faculty and associate professor in the Department for English and Fine Arts at the US Air Force Academy. She, much the same as most of us, writes about her experiences at war and at home, as well as the enigmatic places between.

Monica Sok is the author of Year Zero. She has received fellowships from the NEA, Hedgebrook, MacDowell, Jerome Foundation, Kundiman, and others. Her poems appear in Narrative, Kenyon Review, The New Republic, and VQR. She is a Stadler Fellow at Bucknell University.

Danuta Hinc is a senior lecturer at University of Maryland where she teaches writing. She is the recipient of the Barry Hannah Merit Scholarship in Fiction from Bennington College where she received her MFA in fiction. Hinc is the author of the novel To Kill the Other.
