Writing the Other: A Practical Approach has been the standard text on inclusivity in speculative fiction for over 20 years.  Its co-author Nisi Shawl teaches writers helpful tools for the work of respectfully representing characters differing from their creators’ race, age, gender, etc.; they’ve previously appeared at Duke University, Spelman College, University of Hawaii Manoa and many other learning institutions.
Shawl is also a prolific short story author and multiple award-winning editor.  Their most recent publication is Kinning, a sequel to their Nebula finalist alternate history Everfair.  They live in Seattle, near a large lake filled with dangerous currents and millionaires.
