DivBookFest 2020 Author Submission Form
If you're an author or you represent an author that you think will match the mission statement of DivBookFest (
) then please submit them for consideration for the festival here! Our committee will review all submissions!
DivBookFest is a children’s literature* festival to showcase diverse voices and their stories. The event will be an accessible and open space to celebrate marginalized^ experiences and stories written by diverse authors.^ Our hope is that DivBookFest will allow readers from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in literature to take pride in their identities, and build greater empathy and understanding from allies.
*though kidlit can encompass anything from picture books to young adult, we will be focusing on middle grade and young adult age categories for the inaugural festival (if we receive enough submissions from diverse authors of PB and raise enough funds, then we will work on making accommodations for that category as well!)
^adopted from the DVPit definition of diversity: We recognize all diverse identities and experiences including (but not limited to): Native peoples and people of color; people living and/or born/raised in underrepresented cultures and countries; disabled persons (including neurodiverse); people on marginalized ends of the cultural and/or religious spectrum; people identifying within LGBTQIA+; and more.
(Note: while DivBookFest is supported by #dvpit it is not directly affiliated or run by dvpit)
