FOR THE 2020 CONFERENCE AND BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE FOLLOWING PRESENTATIONS IF THIS IS OF INTEREST TO YOU:
E. Danielle Butler: The Importance of Representation in Publishing
Lois Strachan: Representation in books, and sharing your story to help others feel less marginalized
Desiree Peterkin Bell: Finding your voice, writing your narrative, and understanding other people’s perspective
Women In Publishing are also putting together a live panel during the event week to get different perspectives and viewpoints so that we can discuss the issue more.
Liliana Lopez, one of our speakers from last year and a Latina children’s book author said:
“I don’t think this is about silencing writer’s voices, but more about giving Mexican authors a voice of their own without having someone else take it from them and tell their stories. I am a Mexican immigrant, and it is frustrating to see how little representation we have in the publishing industry. It’s like me writing about someone else’s struggles without having any idea about their culture or the dynamics in their lives.“
And so much more!
