Writing the Other on Writing Excuses – Researching for Writing the Other

Researching for Writing the Other

Nisi Shawl and Silvia Moreno-Garcia join Tempest, Piper J. Drake, and Dan Wells to talk about how writing stories which feature people who are not like you is, in a word, difficult. In another word? Fraught. We discuss how research can make “writing the other” less difficult, and perhaps even less fraught.

(PS – if you need help learning how to research, we give a class on this every year. Check out the Classes tab for the most recent iteration.)
