Nosy call for BAME children’s fiction

Leading independent publisher Nosy Crow has put a call out for submissions of work by debut BAME writers.

‘The issue of diversity (or the lack thereof) in our industry isn’t a new one, of course, and it’s a subject I’ve been thinking about a lot over the last few months, but I was galvanised into action after reading Nikesh Shukla’s column in The Bookseller (see p115), in which he noted that the list of books announced for the 2016 World Book Night do not include any titles by BAME writers, and the conversation that ensued,’ said Nosy Crow commissioning editor Tom Bonnick. ‘I think that there is probably a fair amount of complacency in the industry (and I’ve been as guilty of it as anyone): individually, we all think that of course we’d never discriminate, but at an institutional level, there are clearly problems to address.’
