The Danger of a Single Story

I’ve heard several agents and editors say they are looking for diverse stories, multicultural stories, and always some of the authors around me, who are predominately white, shrink just a little.

I think most of us want to have diverse characters in our books, but we are wary of using offensive stereotypes or of stepping outside our comfort zones.

I hope this TED talk inspires you to expand your cast of characters.

  1. Great idea to feature TED Talks — it’s amazing how much good material they have, but going through it all takes a long time. So thanks for doing that screening in advance and letting us enjoy the easy part of just watching!
