Two new Hotsheets by charles c. smith: The Writers’ Landscape: Reaching Indigenous and Diverse Communities and What Words Can I Use? What Stories Can I Tell? have been released to the public. Both Hotsheets are about the importance of diversity in the magazine publishing industry, and tackle questions about appropriation, equity, inclusion and openness.
- It’s important to engage with diverse communities and understand their interests. The Writers’ Landscape: Reaching Indigenous and Diverse Communities discusses how magazine publishers can better include and write for diverse audiences.
- Many people struggle with finding the right words when it comes to speaking to or about diverse audiences. What Words Can I Use? What Stories Can I Tell? addresses the definition and appropriate use of key words and how to know whether you are able to effectively tell these stories.
The Hotsheets have been written by charles c. smith, a poet, playwright and essayist who has written and edited twelve books. charles is the Executive Director of Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario and Artistic Director of the wind in the leaves collective, an interdisciplinary performance group combining his poetry with music, dance and visual arts which he founded in 2009. He also lectures at the Humber College post-graduate program in arts administration and was formerly the Lecturer, Cultural Pluralism in the Arts at the University of Toronto Scarborough.
