Writers have the capacity to create the type of world we want to live in. Sometimes, this requires a bravery and vulnerability that feels incredibly uncomfortable. How can an author include characters that are different from themselves without being offensive? How does an author find the bravery to write authentically about the world they are creating? This class will be a safe space where authors can wrestle with these questions. Together, we can talk about what makes it hard to write about diversity and each find a unique and authentic way to incorporate this into our writing.
