Media Diversified is a young and growing non-profit organisation which seeks to cultivate and promote skilled writers of colour by providing advice and contacts and by promoting content online through its own platform.
Live since July 2013, the initiative is already diversifying the UK’s media landscape, providing important, challenging and original content which contributes to ongoing global discussions on issues of social justice, equality, gender, politics, economics and pop culture.
'We don’t need any more writers as solitary heroes. We need a heroic writer’s movement: assertive, militant, pugnacious.”' - Toni Morrison
In March 2015 Media Diversified launched its Experts Directory, a searchable resource for media organisations of all sizes.
In February 2016 Media Diversified launched the inaugural Bare Lit Festival – a literature festival giving writers of colour the platform and visibility they deserve.
