According to the CLPE, a mere 4% characters in children’s fiction are from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) background. Even more shocking only 1% of main characters in children’s fiction are BAME. This is a travesty, especially in light of the fact 39% of children in the UK are from these backgrounds.
Countless conferences state that there is a lack of BAME authors, yet at Conscious Dreams Publishing, we have published over 42 authors of African and Caribbean descent over the last three years!
We have published a wide range of self-development, sci-fi, adult and children’s fiction, health and wellness and educational books for adults and children and we invite you to come and celebrate our Black Authors on the Rise.
Come and enjoy author talks, workshops, entertainment, food and drink and support our children by encouraging them to read literature that features characters and stories that represent them. Come and support the authors and hear their journeys and perhaps be inspired to take pen to paper yourself!
Entrance is FREE workshops are £5 (children) £7 (adults)
