2020 has been some year. Here at DartFrog, we’ve been thinking a lot about our network of independent bookstores and how “Safer at Home” is impacting them, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to address the protests that continue to rock our nation in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.
We stand in solidarity with the protestors and the Black Lives Matter movement. As a company whose mission is to amplify the voices of writers without a platform, we understand the importance of being heard. We also know that—like most of the publishing industry—we still have a lot of work to do.
We’re committed to finding ways to be a better vehicle for underrepresented voices, and as a first step, we’re bringing back this blog. Here, we plan on inviting our authors and others to speak for themselves, so keep an eye out for our upcoming posts. We’ll be spotlighting authors’ thoughts on an array of topics.
If you have something you would like to contribute, we’d love to hear from you. You can contact me with any musings, essays, or feedback you’d like to share.
Stay tuned, and stay safe.
