During the course of this day-school, we'll explore the key concepts of diversity in writing and consider why it's important for writers of all kinds to make their work inclusive. We'll define some of the most under-represented identities and uncover the common pitfalls in writing about them. How can we avoid stereotypes and inaccurate representation? Thoroughly researching an identity before writing is key, and together we'll look at how to do that. Through a creative writing exercise, you'll come to realise to what extent a new perspective and identity can bring real depth and richness to your writing.

Tutor: Lauren James
