When you’re writing a character who comes from a different ethnicity or culture than your own, how do you get it right?

This class discusses approaching diversity with sensitivity and realism, and the common mistakes involved in writing diverse characters.

Margaret Dilloway is the author of the middle grade fantasy novels Momotaro: Xander and the Lost Island of Monsters and Xander and the Dream Thief (Disney-Hyperion); and the women’s fiction novels How to be an American Housewife, The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns, and Sisters of Heart and Snow. An upcoming realistic middle grade novel, Summer of a Thousand Pies, will be published by Balzer + Bray in early 2019. She is the winner of the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association Honor Award for Children’s Literature and the ALA Literary Tastes Award for Best Women’s Fiction.
