Punchbowl: Jess Zimmerman

Welcome to the Punchbowl, an interview segment about playing Dungeons and Dragons in 2017 and beyond. We talk to people who are pushing the game forward - creatively, communally, socially, just doing good work.

Today we sit down with Jess Zimmerman, editor at Electric Literature and writer of the Role Monster essay series. We talk about finding female personality in monsters, D&D’s rebirth in popular culture and owlbear taxonomy. Find her at @j_zimms on Twitter or anywhere you see her byline. Check out the articles mentioned in the interview below!
