Mirrors and windows (required reading about inclusion and diversity in publishing for young readers)

Stacy Whitman goes beyond orcs and elves in this two-part analysis of diversity and inclusion in sci-fi and fantasy for young readers. Be sure to watch the video for Tu Publishing. As you read, you may recall a bit of what I talked about in “Representing Heroism,” but Whitman’s piece really digs into how the lack of inclusiveness and diversity affects young readers and their education. Austin’s story is all too common, and what’s sad about it is that it’s so easy to fix and prevent.

  1. Aw, shit, this is pretty much an article I was writing up except way more detailed and covers a lot more ground. Saves me from having to write it, though. :D
