What DiversifYA *isn’t*

A cookie cutter solution. Diversity is not simply a case of finding the right paint-by-number method for your stories. It means you have to invest in your story, and research research research.

– An alternative to research. DiversifYA is an introduction to diversity, it’s not a collection of premade character bios you can use. It is not a substitute for research. But don’t mind us if we want to nudge you in the right direction.

– A blog *about* diversity in fiction. With the sole exception of several thematic DiversiThemes. There are some amazing blogs about diversity already, and they’re doing a much better job at it than we are.

(Shout out to: CBC DiversityDisability in KidlitDiversity in YAThe Gay YAI’m Here. I’m Queer. What the hell do I read?Latin@s in KidlitRich in Color, among others!)

What DiversifYA *is*

Inclusive.
