Media Diversified is a non profit organisation. It is a place where writers of colour who have been unable to break in to the mainstream or been marginalized can publish their work. It is also a space for authors who have seen mainstream success to publish their lesser know essays. Our aim is to help writers and journalists of colour be published in national newspapers, magazines and get their voices heard in the broadcast media. We do this by giving them advice, contacts, promoting their work online and giving them a email address from which they can use to pitch to editors.
