Podium: Diversity in Publishing

Publishing is too white, too middle class and in danger of losing touch with new markets for books. If publishers fail to appeal to the Black and Asian market, they will not get a share of the £32bn in disposable income available to these communities. That is serious money for a £1.55bn market that has seen a relatively slow growth in recent years and is desirous to expand into new markets.
