Explorations in Writing & Publishing: How to Write Diverse Characters (Online)

The world of writing is rapidly evolving. What was considered a great manuscript 10 years ago, might not appeal to readers today. Through lecture, discussion and writing exercises, this series of seminars will help you keep up with the industry, write impactful stories, and find your readers. The young adult and middle grade seminar teaches you how to appeal to those readers. The diverse characters course teaches you what diversity in books means and how to do it well. The marketing seminar teaches you how to build a readership while you write. You can take the seminars individually or call to sign up for all three at the same time and get 15% off. Caitlin Berve is the founder of Ignited Ink Writing where she uses her MFA to edit novels, create video tutorials, teach, and write. As the author of When Magic Calls: A Collection of Modern Fairy Tales, she seeks to fill the world with the kind of writing that lingers with readers and find magic in modern times.
