Interview With Tanita Davis

CBC Diversity has posted an Industry Q&A with author Tanita S. Davis. Yay, Tanita! There are some interesting questions here and one that looks as if it belongs on some kind of exam. "Please write an example of a paragraphthat is tone deaf when it comes to cultural diversity, then write the correct version. Explain the differences in the third paragraph."

Hahahahah!
If it was an exam, I choked the first time; I was thinking of just getting the thing turned around quickly, and that wasn't a required question... so I didn't do it.

They contacted me and asked me to complete the quiz. ☺ Despite it not being an example of fine writing (it's a lot harder to write a thing subtly wrong than I thought) I was just glad to get the point across.

I was really flattered to be asked; I very much appreciate the Diversity blog, AND if you'd like to be part of this... and do the assignment too, you can; I'll put you in touch with the person who contacted me.

Thanks, Tanita. I would be interested in that. Diversity in my writing relates to how women are portrayed, which I'm very interested in, and assimilation.
