Getting Representation Right
Why "Own Voices" matter and why we center them for publication and consultation. Learn more.
Sun Literary has supported and served as advisor to the following literary publications.
A Room of Her Own Foundation
In 2020, A Room of Her Own celebrated its twentieth anniversary of advocacy of women's voices worldwide.
A global magazine dedicated to highlighting and celebrating women, of diverse backgrounds, by sharing their personal stories and achievements.
Nearly 1 in 5 people in the U.S. identify as living with a disability (ADA, US Census) and the numbers increase globally; but this representation is unique in that it is marginalized in both accessibility to narratives and representation in those narratives.
Sun Literary has certified accessibility specialists on our team, and can provide Own Voice expert consultation for making your narratives, website, content and platforms both representative of and accessible to Communities of Disability.
Sun Literary's leadership embodies representation in this vast community and is a member of the Diversability Leadership Collective. If you would like to offer suggestions or request accessibility consultation: Contact Us.

On assignment with American Cowboy some years ago for a conservation article featuring Tejon Ranch in California, my son and I rode to the top of the Tehachapi Range with local vaqueros. Here lived the Kitanemuk People, whose descendants today are enrolled in the Tejon Indian Tribe of California. Sun Lit supports returning ancestral lands to tribal stewardship.
This work was imagined on my great-grandmother's desk in a horse barn on Monacan land in Virginia, flourished on Iipay-Tipay-Diegueño land in California, and is based in Cherokee Nation, the state of Oklahoma, home to 39 tribes. Continued.
