Minorities in Publishing

The brain child of publishing professional Jenn Baker, Minorities in Publishing (MiP) is a podcast discussing diversity (or lack thereof) in the book publishing industry with other professionals working in-house as well as authors and those in the literary scene.

Feb 12, 2015

Jenn and Bev speak with literary agent at Liza Dawson Associates Monica Odom about her experiences in terms of her trajectory in the publishing industry and how the diversity movement seems to have taken shape and made the need for discussion about more diversity part of the everyday conversation. Literary agents are seen as "gatekeepers" by writers and Monica explains that agents experience rejection and the various reasons this may happen.
