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.

Dec 15, 2022

[This interview was conducted via Zoom with several participants, so there may be some audio variation.]

Ten days into the HarperCollins Union strike, four employees and union members--Doris, Genessee, Ahmunet, and Parrish--spoke to Jenn about the requests the union has made to HarperCollins, how to support those on strike, on why they believe in the work they do as both publishing professionals and in being vocal on pushing for a contract renewal, as well as what it's been like on (and off) the picket line. As of this episode posting, the strike is now on Day 26 with no response from HarperCollins management. Listeners can follow the HCP Union on Instagram and Twitter as well as go to their LinkTree for assets, to sign their solidarity letter, for information on how to donate and about their 12/16 Rally in the Financial District.
