Black Ballad Presents: How Black Women Get Published

How do black women break into an industry that is notoriously inaccessible for those who are not white and middle class?

To answer this, we've collaborated with Nancy Adimora (HarperCollins & AFREADA) to host: How Black Women Get Published - a virtual frank conversation with our head of editorial Jendella Benson about black women and the current literary landscape in the UK.

Nancy Adimora is the Talent & Audience Development Manager at HarperCollins Publishers, and the Founding Editor of AFREADA, an African literary magazine.
