Diversity is a hot topic in the publishing world. Authors, readers, agents, and publishing houses are looking for bright, new, and real stories written by original and marginalized writers. Navigating this facet of publishing can be scary for some, whether you’re a marginalized writer struggling to get your book out there, or a writer trying to accurately represent a different culture. What does diversity mean? Are you a diverse author? Are there certain ways to write inclusively and appropriately? Why is diversity important? Let’s talk about it! Let’s discuss diversity in publishing, what a diverse book means, and what we can do to help the industry progress. From LGBTQ+ books, to books starring POC characters, books with religious protagonists, and books that embrace culture – diversity is here and it’s our job as writers and readers to lead the publishing industry into an age where it is widely understood. We’ll be discussing the in’s and out’s of Twitter pitch parties. How to snag representation. The importance of diversity. Writing a strong diverse book. And the beauty of sensitivity readers.
