Mission: uplifting diverse voices telling the stories THEY want to.
Problem we're solving: most existing publishers force BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other diverse authors (like neurodivergent and disabled) to write ABOUT their identities in (often traumatic) issue books
How we're solving the problem: We will publish books by diverse authors but not pigeon-hole them in what story they CAN tell
Market Size: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 44,240 writers/authors in the USA in 2020. Only 11% of 2018's NYT Bestsellers were by BIPOC individuals so one can only imagine the number of underserved writers out there. In 2021, book publishing made $825.75 million (https://www.statista.com/statistics/422595/print-book-sales-usa/), which means there are many readers who would be willing to read these books.
