Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference - How Literary Magazines Cultivate Meaningful Inclusivity

  • Oregon Convention Center - Level 1 - B116 777 Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

So you’re looking to publish a more diverse array of voices. Is your branding conveying unintentional biases? How do you broadcast a meaningful message of inclusivity? Our panel, comprised of editors of color from a variety of literary organizations, will describe how to build an infrastructure of inclusivity that considers staffing, mentorship opportunities, and editorial choices as well as other inward- and outward-facing strategies that will actively support and attract writers of color.

Join Jenn Scheck-Kahn, Andrew Jimenez, Joyce Chen, Chelene Knight, and Geeta Kothari as they discuss their ideas for a more diverse and inclusive literary magazine.
