For writers and other creators of fictional worlds, 2019 and beyond needs to be about crafting characters and fictions that don’t support or excuse or ignore colonialism, marginalization, and other forms of oppression. Representation is key to good writing, and it’s imperative that creators learn how to craft inclusive fiction that reflects of the diversity of the world we all live in. This is true whether you’re a novelist, a playwright, or a screenwriter; whether you work in television, in game development, or new media.
All narrative has the power to impact culture and individuals in a positive way or a negative one. It’s up to creators to choose.
This year, Writing the Other is offering four deep dive online courses covering every top-level issue authors face when they set out to write inclusive, diverse fiction: creating characters who aren’t stereotypes, avoiding offensive language in description, crafting dialect and dialogue that doesn’t read like a caricature, and building inclusive worlds. Combined, these four classes have all the content of our original Writing the Other Online courses plus more lectures, writing exercises, and resources.
