Come to our panel Making Diversity Happen: Editors Can Change the Literary Landscape. (Lee Hope, Moderator. Panelists: Margaret Elysia Garcia, Danielle Georges, Martha Nichols, and J.D.Wang)
Many literary editors now acknowledge the lack of diversity in the writers they publish. Yet the debate often turns into female and minority authors blaming the editing “guys”—and editors, male and female, wringing their hands but offering few solutions. This panel will focus on what editors and writers need to do to make diversity happen, be it networking outside their comfort zones, hiring editors of color, or running online social media campaigns to promote a truly diverse literary world.
Then, right after
