So to finish this year off, we are going to discuss a few issues that have been bought up over the last year, 2017 has been the year where we have really tackled character issues, mainly on the diversity front.
Over the next few weeks I’m going to look at how I think the issues that have been raised could be tackled, where I think literature is heading, and some of the great examples I have read.
Firstly I’ll be discussing the token society and how we are heading towards diversity rather than just inclusion, and then looking at cultural respect and the importance of getting the information right, and finally I’ll be looking at the importance of author experience and whether you should only write what you know.
So, let’s end this year on a high note! I know that many of these topics are triggers and I strive to never offend people through my thoughts on this blog, however if you do find yourself offended, or feel what I discuss in the posts to be wrong or inaccurate, please let me know.
Until next time,
