Publishing four to six titles in its first year, the line's mission is inclusivity: "to source, nurture and publish writing talent – and reach audiences – from areas currently under-represented or not covered by the mainstream publishing industry, including people from BAME backgrounds, the LGBTQI+ community and those with disabilities."
