ECPA presents Thursday webinar on Diversity & Inclusion in Christian Fiction
In this Thursday’s Art of Writing webinar, Embolden Media CEO Jevon Bolden, along with Jamie Lapeyrolerie (Senior Marketing Manager of WaterBrook & Multnomah), and writers Tasha Jun and Rachel Kang will give authors guidance on specific, practical questions such as what it looks like to amplify the voices of authors of color, how to be authentic when writing characters of a different racial or ethnic background, and why diverse stories have a staying power beyond the current cultural moment. The session will also include a 5-minute inspirational segment from award-winning novelist Cynthia Ruchti. This fourth session of the five-part weekly webinar series hosted by The Christy Award®, will air this Thursday, October 29 at 7 pm central time.
Next week’s session will talk with editors on how debut novels stood out in the proposal process. The authors of The Christy Award® First Novel finalists are talking via Facebook tomorrow here.
