Appropriation versus Diversity - CTan

Appropriation versus Diversity
Beating the Double-edged Sword

One of the adages fed to writing students everywhere is “write what you know.”
But anyone who writes only about themselves is likely to be accused of lacking in diversity and needing to represent under-represented voices/characters more. Write about anyone other than yourself, though, and you risk being accused of appropriation.

Politically progressive, inclusive voices are too important to be silenced by fear! Come get empowered to find your inner voice and tell the stories that need to be told.
