The Issue of Race Part Two: What Defines Race

Have you ever have difficulty describing the race of your characters when writing your novel?
My daughter, Nickay , has written a series on her blog – The Pink Ravyn Writes – on how to professionally address race and ethnic diversity in your literary work. The Issue of race Part One (Introduction)

Nickay states that your writing should not be “color blind,” but writers must know how to skillfully describe their characters so that the readers will automatically know their race without having to use generic terms such as “Black” “White” “African-American” or “Latino”

Nickay series will give you a clear definition of race and a guide to describe skin color in your novel.

Feel free to like, comment and share her post. Thank you for reading!
