publishing platform for underrepresented authors

A new publishing platform for underrepresented authors

June Sarpong has teamed up with HQ, a division of HarperCollins Publishers, to launch a new platform aimed at promoting the work of underrepresented authors without agents. 

The British broadcaster, author and Director of Creative Diversity at BBC says she wants to give a voice to authors with disabilities, those from minority ethnic backgrounds and those from working-class backgrounds. She wants to provide a platform for authors often ignored, overlooked or unheard. 

“Over the past five years, I have been fortunate enough to work with Lisa Milton and the HQ family on my own books,” she said. “Their commitment to diversity and inclusion has been unwavering, so I can’t think of a better team to collaborate with on my new publishing imprint.

“It is such an honour to be able to offer a platform for new voices from diverse backgrounds, there are so many stories that are yet to be told from worlds that have so much rich content to offer a mainstream audience,” she added.
