For Us by Us: 11 Black Owned Publishing Companies

May 4, 2018

Being a person of color trying to break out into publishing, things can get frustrating. You don't want to go the route of self-publishing, and the trenches of querying can be tough. As a person of color, we want to tell stories that relate to our culture. Stories that shed light on social issues through entertainment or even just featuring characters of color. Writers of color are often turned down by traditional publishers who feel that their novels don't have enough white characters, therefore they won't sell. Then there is just straight up discrimination that is an everyday struggle for us already. But there is a light at the end of the querying tunnel! Black publication companies exist, and I've found some for you! Take a look at some companies that thrive on featuring stories about us, for us.
