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 27, 2023

[This interview was conducted online so there may be some audio variation.]

Jenn speaks with debut novelist Namrata Poddar about her book Border Less (longlisted for the 2022 Center of Fiction First Novel Prize), pursuing publication with an small press versus a Big 5 publisher, the "classic" question of marketability versus craft that BIPOC writers especially face when publishing their work, and one's intentionality in not only their writing but what their expectations are when it comes to publication.  

(We also mention Book Coaching and the Unicorn Authors Club that you can learn more about at their website.)
