Welcome to THE BIPOC BOOKSHELF - a place for readers, writers, and publishing professionals. Here you'll find stories created by Black, Indigenous, People of Color, marginalized, and underrepresented authors. Intersectionalities included! You'll also find resources for writers who hope to have their own stories published one day.
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!
Since The BIPOC Bookshelf is unable to vet all stories, publishing professionals, and shared information, please do additional research if need be! There are titles here that we can't wait to read and resources we can't wait to share!

Thank you for stopping by!
