Cultural Expression And Children's Publishing

By 2010, one in five school children in the UK will be from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds, a reality not reflected in the books currently produced. Publishing is a notoriously white, middle class profession, which inevitably affects the acquisition and editorial process for stories written by authors from outside of the dominant culture. In this talk, Laura Atkins reflected on her experiences editing multicultural picture books, and discussed her research on how the publication process has affected children´┐Żs books written by non-white authors in the UK.
