These are resources I find useful. Some are on writing, some on the business of writing, and others are writing or publishing tools I personally use.
I plan to update this page periodically and welcome suggestions!
“Writing the Other” Workshops and Books with Nisi Shawl, K. Tempest Bradford and others.
“The Fundamentals of Writing the Other” by Daniel Jose Older
“There is No Secret to Writing About People Who Do Not Look Like You” by Brandon Taylor

I recommend Dean Wesley Smith’s “Depth in Writing” and “Advanced Depth” online workshops. They shaved years from my learning curve.
Stephen Barnes and Tananarive Due’s “Afrofuturism” class is mind expanding. They should be running it regularly.
