Hello Rebels, welcome to episode 102 of The Rebel Author Podcast. Today, I’m talking to Eliana West all about how to write diverse characters.
In this episode we cover:
- Why diversity in fiction is important
- What to do if you’re afraid to approach writing diverse characters
- Sensitivity readers
- What you need to research
- How to include diverse characters when you yourself are not diverse
This week’s question is: Tell us a book you’ve enjoyed with diverse characters.
