107 - Writing the Other w/ Nisi Shawl & Cynthia Ward
Ever wondered how to write characters different from yourself respectfully & convincingly? We sat down with the folks who literally wrote the book on this topic. Nisi Shawl & Cynthia Ward created "Writing the Other," a book and series of excellent workshops taught by some of the best authors working in SF/F today. Their workshops teach techniques, practical exercises, and examples with the aim of both increasing writers’ skill and sensitivity in portraying differences (ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, age, etc.) in their fiction as well as allaying their anxieties about “getting it wrong.” Listen in & enjoy!
