Creativity Matters: a conversation with Captain Marvel & Aquaman writer Kelly Sue DeConnick

Kelly Sue DeConnick is the iconic comic book and television writer whose long run on Marvel’s Captain Marvel inspired the record-breaking 2019 film starring Brie Larson. She’s also an outspoken feminist activist who is on a mission to make art that truly reflects the world around us. Her fiery keynotes challenge us to engage critically with the media we consume, get comfortable with being uncomfortable, and do anything we can to make our voices heard. “What I bring to the table matters,” she says. “I know that heroes—even the really gothy ones—don’t limit themselves to battles they know that they can win.”
