SummaryJoin Nisi Shawl in an exploration of ways to show the intersections of race and gender, age and ability, and other diverse backgrounds.
DescriptionHow do you realistically represent characters who are different from you in more than one way? Exercises, examples, and discussion help you depict the busy intersections of race and gender, age and ability, and many other diverse backgrounds, showing them in your work’s setting, action, dialogue, and relationships.

Nisi Shawl wrote the Tiptree Award-winning collection “Filter House” and the Nebula finalist and Tiptree Honor novel “Everfair,” an alternate history of the Congo. She’s a founder of the Carl Brandon Society and a Clarion West board member.
