The Good Immigrant's editor plans new journal and agency for writers of colour
Nikesh Shukla and literary agent Julia Kingsford have launched Kickstarter appeal to fund The Good Journal, with further plans for an affiliated agency
After selling more than 50,000 copies and being named the British public’s favourite book of 2016, the success of anthology The Good Immigrant has prompted the launch of a new literary journal to showcase British writers of colour.
The book’s editor, Nikesh Shukla, published the collection of essays on race and immigration after crowdfunding the project with support from big names such as JK Rowling and thousands of pledges from the public. Its success has, said Shukla, been so phenomenal that he and the literary agent Julia Kingsford are now looking to raise £40,000 on Kickstarter to publish a new quarterly, The Good Journal.
