Mirrors, Windows & Doors: Writing & Thinking Cross-Culturally with Tiffany Liao.
If you’re supposed to “write what you know,” how can you create convincingly and respectfully from a perspective outside of your own? I’ll offer insights and craft-based advice from my experience editing and reading cross-culturally.
Tiffany Liao is an editor at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers. She’s had the pleasure of editing authors such as Tomi Adeyemi, Rhoda Belleza, Dhonielle Clayton, K.D. Halbrook, Lesley Livingston, Henry Lien, Kristin O’Donnell Tubb, and Margaret Owen, among others. She acquires young adult and middle grade fiction of all stripes, as well as the occasional nonfiction title. A Bay Area native, Tiff now resides in Brooklyn where she continues to pine for a good avocado. She (mostly) tweets about bookish things at @tiff_liao.
