The Diverse Book Awards 2022
Created by The Author School. We want to highlight the best of the diverse voices published in the UK during 2021, both traditionally and self-published. We believe there's a need to showcase the talent of marginalised voices, so we came up with The DBAwards to open a space where the spotlight is on them.
Now in our third year!
