August 22, 2020 at 1:00 pm — Crafting a Colorful Cast with C. Chilove
Participants will engage in world-building that encompasses diversity while creating characters that are absent stereotypes. Authors will learn to explore the world around them and identify diversity (age, race, gender, socioeconomics, culture) to gain more understanding on stereotypes and how to avoid them. Authors participating will be encouraged to read through the examples to determine what could be done to remove unconscious bias to make works embody a colorful cast.

Her characters are strong, witty, and prove that diversity is beautiful. Former President of the Cultural, Interracial, and Multicultural Special Interest Chapter of Romance Writers of America, C.
