S2E11 – Writing Interracial and Intercultural relationships

In this episode of Doing Diversity in Writing, we—Bethany and Mariëlle—scratch the surface of an incredibly broad topic: writing interracial and intercultural relationships.

Listen to it here on Podbean or find us on your favourite podcast app.

What we talked about

  • That writing relationships between characters of different races and cultures is really not that different from writing relationships between characters who are not exactly the same for other reasons
  • Questions to ask yourself and things to keep in mind when crafting interracial and intercultural relationships in your writing
  • A ton of examples in which interracial and intercultural relationships are depicted well and convincingly
