Inclusive Language and Avoiding Bias

The person reading what you write or edit may be different from you in race, gender, sexuality, religion, or disability, and your personal identities and experiences affect how you see the world. So how can you make sure your work is as free as possible from unintentionally exclusive or offensive wording? Fellow editor Beth Wright and I will discuss the importance of inclusive language and diversity in the publishing process and share some key questions to ask, common missteps to avoid, and go-to resources to use in your writing and editing life. Venue to come.

Think Like an Editor

Has an editor or beta reader ever made a suggestion for your writing that completely changed your perspective? Do you envy the eagle-eyed people who can spot errors you miss in your own manuscript? In this class for the Loft Literary Center, I’ll share some of the common issues I see in work I edit—long and short, nonfiction and fiction—and how writers can address them in their own self-revision process.
