Doing Diversity in Writing

DDW - S2 Ep 08 – When Money Gets Between Your Writing and Hiring Professionals

March 9, 2022

In this episode of Doing Diversity in Writing, we—Bethany and Mariëlle—take a pause to talk about what to do when hiring professionals to better your writing is not an option (yet). 


What we talked about

  • That there’s privilege in being able to advice others to do it right or not do it at all
  • That not everyone has the same resources going into publishing their work
  • What options are out there for authors with limited or no budgets
