‘Editorial Reflections: Cultural Expression and Children’s Publishing’: Laura Atkins

Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies

Publishing Research Seminar

Taking Place: Buckley BG11 in Semester 1 2006

With immigration and multiculturalism dominating national debate, it is important to consider the implications of cultural diversity for the children's publishing industry. By 2010, one in five school children in the UK will be from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) backgrounds, a reality not reflected in the books currently produced. Publishing is a notoriously white, middle class profession, which inevitably affects the acquisition and editorial process for stories written by authors from outside of the dominant culture. In this talk, Laura Atkins will reflect on her experiences editing multicultural picture books, and discuss her research on how the publication process has affected children's books written by non-white authors in the UK.
