‘It is extremely important that mine is not the only voice being solicited when discussing and considering ways to make the Australian publishing landscape more inclusive … It is even more critical that companies … commit to doing the work to change their practices and mindsets in a sustainable and holistic way, rather than looking for a readymade action list created for them by people of colour.’—Radhiah Chowdhury in her Beatrice Davis Editorial Fellowship report on the experiences and perspectives of BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) editors and authors working in the publishing industry.
With two days of programming, it will cover a variety of topics, including women of colour in publishing and metadata best-practices, with a keynote on resilience and recovery in book publishing post-Covid. The conference will also include the shortlist announcement for the SPN’s inaugural Book of the Year Award, which can be booked separately, for free.
Deep discounts are available for SPN members, students and the unwaged.
