With diversity being such a focus in publishing right now, many stories featuring characters written from the point of view of various cultures and races are on the rise. However, the number of authors of color writing these stories remains stagnant.
This contest is aimed at pushing the shared goal of representation, both on the page and behind the scenes. Seeing yourself in the stories you love is important, and equally so is seeing yourself being able to tell those stories. That’s why the Writing from Color and Native Voices contest is going to feature authors of Color and Native Nations.
