About BIPOC Bookshelf

The BIPOC Bookshelf is for writers, readers, and literary professionals. We aim to uplift stories by Black, Indigenous, People of Color and its intersectionalities, help all to discover new titles by BIPOC, find and connect publishing professionals, and provide resources to potential (BIPOC) writers.

“The BIPOC Bookshelf was created because, as a child, I struggled to find stories with characters who shared the same identities as me. I wanted to read about characters unlike those that currently dominate the publishing industry. Hopefully our website and databases will make for easy searching, researching, connecting, and discovering." - AJ

What we provide:

BIPOC Bookshelf: a database uplifting fiction and select nonfiction titles by BIPOC authors and creators. A place for readers to discover new stories and for publishing professionals to find comp titles. We update this database continuously. Subscribers are notified once a month or two.

BIPOC Editors & Agents Database: a database featuring BIPOC publishing professionals with information on their publishing houses/literary agencies, and their story interests. The goal with this database is to connect agents with editors and writers with agents. This database is continuously updated.

The More You Know: dedicated to sharing informational lists, tips, while featuring a Guest Writers series where BIPOC traditionally published authors and professionals share their perspectives and advice with potential BIPOC writers.

We hope to do more in the future to support the community and to make the platform even better for people like you.

Along with these services, your support and donations will keep this platform alive. The funds will contribute to website hosting and domain costs, giveaways, technical support, production, as well as bills which will allow us to continue our research, curate information, and continue to assist readers, writers, and publishing professionals.

Thank for your support. We appreciate you.
