The Diverse Book Awards, a literary award created by the Author School, is looking for judges to help determine the best books of 2021 that help promote diverse voices that are published in the UK.
From the website:
Created by The Author School. We want to highlight the best of the diverse voices published in the UK during 2020, 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. “
If you are interested in applying to be a judge please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, November 30.
Here are the 2020 winners of the prize.
