"That was when I realized that writing diverse fiction wasn’t simply about including people who looked, dressed, or spoke differently. Diverse fiction certainly encompasses those things, but at its core, diversity in fiction is about presenting the world through different viewpoints. Everyone’s life experience, regardless of their ethnic or cultural background, gives them a unique lens through which they see and interpret the world."

Livia Blackburne today on Diversity in YA's tumblr today, talking about diverse fiction and her debut novel.
