LeMar McLean from Marz Media hosts regular podcast interviews to showcase the “unheard, but interesting voices around us”. Turn up the volume and take a listen to the interview where LeMar and Ayanna chat about diversity in publishing and how Quill Shift Literary Agency aims to support and promote more of it.
Quill Shift Literary Agency actually publicizes authors’ work even before the manuscript is sent to a publishing house to consider. Ayanna allows readers early access to promising manuscripts and readers determine which manuscripts become eligible for advancement to a publisher. This model is designed to “market test” an author’s work and establishes an audience, assuring high interest from publishers.
