In the Press
[Dill Werner] write queer adult and young adult fiction about fantastical circuses and asexual magicians. It is well known that they will try anything and everything pickle flavored, and probably tell you about it on Instagram.
For Dill Werner, though, the concept of having a one-night stand is both alien and terrifying, like slipping through a wormhole into an alternate universe.
I can only speak for one person when it comes to demisexuality—me. My experiences, my preferences, my sexuality, me. Being a queer demisexual means that I fall somewhere along a spectrum within a spectrum along another spectrum.
The Daily Dot
Dill Werner is a genderqueer, demisexual-panromantic author of queer fiction for adults and young adults, who uses they/them pronouns. While earning degrees in Creative Writing and German Language and Literature, they taught ESOL in Germany and German in the United States, which wasn’t confusing at all.
An advocate for trans and nonbinary people, they’ve written about demisexuality for YAPride, have been interviewed on demisexuality for The Daily Dot, were featured on Culturess’s 20 Nonbinary Creators You Need to Keep An Eye Out For, and VICE’s Five People on Their Favorite Things About Being Nonbinary.
They also spoke with INTO More for the article Non-Binary and Trans Survivors Are Suffering Silently Through the Kavanaugh Confirmation. When not attending Cirque du Soleil shows or swimming like a mermaid, they live with their spouse and two chonky bunnies in the southeastern United States.
