Happy New Year, everyone! We’ve got lots of exciting updates to share with you this month. But first…

Diversity Festival Committees:
This year, we will also be setting up our diversity festival committees. If you or anyone you know has experience in event programming or fundraising, and would like to help out, we would love for you to volunteer to be on this committee! We invite you to fill out the volunteer form on our website, and send an e-mail expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our internships program, which will provide opportunities to those from diverse backgrounds with career goals in the publishing industry, will be headed by Linda Sue Park!
