Workshops are presented in a safe environment where thoughtful, respectful dialog guides the conversation, the Writing Diversity in Genre Fiction workshop provides attendees with the tools and confidence to incorporate diverse characters and settings into their stories.

Writing Diversity in Genre Fiction is based on three main anchors: Racial identity, Building Your Story with Diversity and, Avoiding Stereotypes. But, those anchors are just a starting point. The workshop often goes into exciting and unanticipated directions as engaged audiences begin raising their hands to ask questions (often question they’ve long wondered about, but never had the opportunity to ask), share their own stories and begin imagining new directions their own writing can go in with the information at hand.
