This interactive workshop offers information, examples, and exercises for writers seeking to write responsibly about diverse people. An increasingly multi-cultural reading audience, agents, and publishers expect writers to create and describe diverse characters, settings, and motives in a manner reflective of their complex cultures and conflicts, devoid of stereotypes and “alternative facts.” Class participants will have the opportunity to share their work with the instructor and other class attendees for constructive feedback on their efforts to write responsibly. Diverse insights are welcome.
