Mariam is a phenomenal writer & a testament to our amazing homegrown talent. GOOD FOR NOTHING is stunning - I fell in love with it on submission & think about it so often. An ode to the North, a celebration of friendship & the beauty of finding joy no matter what. Congrats bab!❤️

"This one is for those whose smiles are sometimes read as troublesome, whose laughter is falsely labelled disruptive, whose silences are often misinterpreted." Congratulations to Mariam Ansar whose YA debut GOOD FOR NOTHING has been acquired by Penguin 🎉

This is why I complain about publishers not having any longevity. They panic buy minority authors, don't build them as a brand like they do white authors, & then their budget for said author evaporates bc they only care about the immediate gratification of publishing them.

The power in marginalised readers seeing stories by them, for them, with them in mind is immeasurable. These are the readers who should be centred for and in these stories and this should be second nature to publishers. Simple.

‘it wasn’t until recently that I read a piece of contemporary fiction that I felt didn’t appease white readers’…With KEISHA THE SKET charting at no.11 in HB fiction this week, maybe publishers don’t need to centre white m/c readers as much as they think they do eh 🧐
