Childrens and YA Graphic

What does it mean to write "inclusively"? If you're struggling to authentically portray diverse characters, plus identify solid mentor texts as a guide, this summer intensive is for you. Explore character, culture, compassion, and empathy with other kidlit and YA authors through course readings, creative writing exercises, and one-on-one instructor guidance—aimed to help you incorporate "own voices" in your work by avoiding the pitfalls of appropriation or insensitivity to marginalized communities. Live chats will be scheduled with students.
