A panel of writers and editors will discuss different avenues of inclusivity in publishing, including accessibility and sensitivity to issues of race, gender and sexuality, and class. We'll also discuss the obstacles non-western authors face in getting published and celebrated in an industry that is weighted heavily towards the US and UK. This panel will discuss both problems and potential solutions, including ways publishers both large and small can strive to be more inclusive.
