Why Take this course?

As a writer, your words will have an impact on your reader’s life whether they notice it or not. Being able to write authentic characters who are unlike yourself can be a daunting task. Having a POC teach you the inner workings of a community you are not a member of will allow you to connect with your readers on a deeper level. Your contribution to society through your words will allow your readers a chance to see themselves within the pages.

implicit bias

What is implicit bias? – Attitudes, stereotypes, and beliefs that can affect how we treat others. Thoughts and feelings are implicit if we are unaware of them or mistaken about their nature.

We’ll cover the 6 different types of bias commonly found in books today and how to ensure you don’t write them in your books.

Nuances of colorism

Did you know that colorism is a huge issue within the BIPOC community? 

We’ll discuss exactly what colorism is and the negative impact it has played on marginalized communities. After which, you’ll be able to write multi-dimensional characters that your reader will be able to connect to.

intent vs. impact

 Although you may have started out by developing a character with the intent of making a positive impact, it may be doing more harm than good. 

This is a very common obstacle for writers and by the end of this course, you will be able to ensure your characters are as authentic as possible.

Where is the diversity in books?

One of the best ways to bridge the gap and bring more diversity to books is to write more authentic characters who represent communities unlike your own. It’s more important than ever to write those characters correctly and leave out what you “think” they are like. You need to create characters that represent the marginalized exactly how they are without any bias. 

That’s where this course comes in. You will walk away knowing that your character is adding to the solution and not the problem. You can and will make a huge difference in the world through your words.

You are the gatekeeper!

Why Did I Create This Course?

As a blogger, I often came across books written by white people who attempted to write characters of the BIPOC community. Their characters were often completely off base. I couldn't connect to a white person's version of someone who looked like me. I knew in my heart that the author's meant no harm and they had good intentions when writing their books. Once I read a book that misrepresented a culture, I no longer read any of the author's books. It was a complete turn-off. My blog is known for its raw honesty and when authors read my reviews they started to reach out for assistance. I began to read manuscripts and help the author write their characters more authentically. It became a passion for me. I felt as though I was doing my part in the book community and it's been amazing. In the wake of George Flloyd and the explosion of the BLM movement, so many more authors have reached out for my guidance, which brings the biggest smile to my face. I want to help as many writers as I can on a wider scale. In July I started working on this course and now it is ready. If you're willing to do the work, I am more than happy to help. This comes from a place of love and passion for the book community.

Depending on your character development and storyline, we'll discuss how to incorporate or microaggressions into your work to drive the story forward.

Racial Gaslighting

Many authors make the mistake of placing racial gaslighting in their work without realizing they are offending an entire community. We'll go over what it is and how to use it in the right way.

Police Brutality

Want to address police brutality in your story but unsure how? This course covers the ins and outs of police brutality in marginalized communities and strategic ways to address it.

Reverse Racism

Reverse racism in a powerful topic that many authors are afraid to address it. It's a topic that should be written about the correct way. We'll go discuss how to address this topic in your work.

Frequently asked questions

You’ll join myself and other speakers for an 8 hour live webinar over 2 days. Before the webinar you will receive a workbook to follow along during the lessons. 

 The Diversity and Cultural Sensitivity Training for Authors is specifically designed to equip you with the lates principles and techniques that are working today.

You’ll get step-by-step, along with Q&A recordings to guide you through writing the most critical diversity topics you need to build a story that will connect with a broader audience.

I’ve tailored this course to be used across all genres of writing. During the webinar there will be a Q&A time where you can get live feedback on your work to ensure you are getting the best out of the program.

I have worked with so many authors who have the same questions. They want to know if their work is culturally accurate, if it is offensive, did they use the right wording was correct, etc. It became obvious to me that a service to help authors would grant me the ability to reach a wider audience. 

You can set up a phone call to discuss your work in greater details. All I ask is for you to send me the pages in question so I can review them before our call to make sure I have all the details beforehand.
