Publishing in Color

Spiritual Writers' Conferences for Under-Represented Groups


Publishing in Color is a series of conferences for groups of spiritual writers who are currently under-represented in terms of the number of books published. These include African Americans, Asian Americans, Latino/a Americans, and Native Americans. The goals of these conferences are to:

  • Foster relationships between under-represented groups of prospective spiritual writers and representatives of spiritual book publishing companies and spiritual magazines
  • Provide networking and educational opportunities so that prospective writers can learn more about how to work with these publishers and magazines
  • Result in an increased number of books and articles published by under-represented groups

People of color have important stories to tell that shape the great American narrative. Heroic struggles for justice; incredible contributions to technology, science and the arts; remarkable resistance and resilience are hallmarks of these stories.
