“When the ONLY person of colour in the narrative is the villain, the message could be construed that ‘white = good”
Lucy V. Hay, Writing Diverse Characters For Fiction, TV or Film

Lucy V. Hay
“Consider making your antagonist’s disability incidental in the storyworld”

Lucy V. Hay, Writing Diverse Characters For Fiction, TV or Film

Lucy V. Hay
“Historian Greg Jenner, author and chief advisor to the BBC’s Horrible Histories programme, points out: ‘If you write a story set in the past, there’s a decent chance at least one of your characters could be a person of colour, or perhaps an immigrant, or both. It’s not political correctness to increase casting diversity, it’s actually a matter of historical accuracy.”
Lucy V. Hay, Writing Diverse Characters For Fiction, TV or Film
