    Thanks for sharing this link! It’s a really great article, which highlights all of my usual frustrations with the publishing industry and to some extent, society in general.

      It really is. I’m a freelance editor and plan on getting back to writing one day. It’s daunting.

      This is my favorite part of Older’s piece:

      “Maybe the word hasn’t been invented yet – that thing beyond diversity. We often define movements by what they’re against, but the final goal is greater than the powers it dismantles, deeper than any statistic. It’s something like equity – a commitment to harvesting a narrative language so broad it has no face, no name.”
