To our authors, readers, and the publishing community,
For close to 20 years, Quirk Books has delivered genre-bending and trend-setting entertainment. While we’ve often been ahead of the curve in many areas, we’ve failed to address the systemic racism in our program, which is reflected in the lack of diversity in our staff and our list. We can do better.
We closed our offices for three days last week to reflect on this important realization. We are working with all 22 members of our staff to question every aspect of our values, brand, and strategy.
Our leadership team will then create an actionable plan that you’ll see reflected in every area of our business—not just in the books we publish.
Thank you for your continued support as we embark on this work with passion and energy.
