About this course:
Join the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program for conversations on navigating the publishing industry as a writer of color. Featured panelists discuss the cultural specific challenges and successes that they have faced as they moved through their careers. The discussion includes publishing opportunities for writers of color as well as where to find and discover new readership outside of your own culture and community. A Q & A session is held after the presentations, and students have the opportunity to share concerns and experiences. The discussion is moderated by Sehba Sarwar & Wally Rudolph, both current instructors at UCLA Extension.
