Diverse Books, Diverse Voices

Diverse representation—of characters, of setting—is something that many editors are now actively looking for. A significant part of the solution is, of course, signing more writers of color, but that can’t be the sole answer. This panel discussion will delve into issues of representation and answer some of your questions along the way. How do you approach writing a character whose background is different from yours? How do you do it in a way that is authentic, respectful, and moves beyond tokenism? If you want to write more consciously and inclusively, this panel will prove invaluable to you. Come with questions!
