Not Just Diverse, But Inclusive: Prioritizing Publishers of Color. This workshop will walk you through the steps of finding publishers of color to order from and support. The purpose of this workshop is to present methods as well as discuss the importance of bringing Publishers of Color to the forefront. We’ll also cover tips on knowing when not to purchase books from a publisher and vetting the publishers you find. We’ll look at combating systems of power and focusing not only on authors of color, but the publishing professionals who work so hard to bring us these stories. The publishers we’ll focus on will range from academic titles, art books, novels, and even children’s books, but the methods can be used for a variety of genres.
