The 2019 Diversity Baseline Survey found that 79 percent of the publishing industry identifies as White, 88 percent were straight, and 92 percent were non-disabled. The book industry has the power to shape culture in big and small ways, and the people behind the books make a huge difference in determining which stories are amplified and which are shut out. Wise Ink is committed to diversity in publishing and will prioritize applications from marginalized groups.
