SinC into Great Writing 2016 will commence on September 14. This workshop brings together many voices: mystery writers from among the African American, Latino, Asian, Native, LGBTQ, and disability communities (as well as a token straight white TAB*) to talk about capturing our diverse world in our fiction.

It’s for everyone—whether you’re writing your life, struggling to escape clichés or avoiding The Issue altogether in case you offend . . . let’s talk. If you have answers, questions, insights, outrage…let’s talk.

The workshop runs from 1–6 pm with a 20-minute break. (Refreshments provided.) There are sessions on character development, pitfalls in plotting, the role of settings, and the lurking problems of dialogue. The afternoon rounds off with a Q&A panel where our presenters and other experts will answer any questions you still have.

*TAB—Temporarily Able Bodied (The insightful term some in the disability community use for those outside it.)
