Addressing Diversity in Novel Manuscripts

The number of books with ethnic characters has risen over the last few years. Because publishing houses are looking for more diversity in what authors are submitting, non-ethnic writers need to address some important issues when addressing diversity in their manuscripts. It is important to remember your most valuable ability as a writer is your credibility.

This workshop focuses on the impact of writing about a culture outside of your own and offers information to help authors write with authenticity in their manuscripts.
