#DiverseDecember: In Which Diversity Is Not A Myth [Literary Lists]

Recently I noticed a hashtag going around twitter, #DiverseDecember. Turns out it’s a celebration of books by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic writers (aka BAME), for this month!

It even has it’s own twitter account, which you can find @DiverseDecember!!! The account mainly retweets posts with the hashtag, so it’s worth having a look through if you want some diverse books to add to your to-read list, or if you still haven’t bought a Christmas or Hanukkah gift.

The original poster of this post has now deactivated their account, so I can’t credit them for their work. 😡 I just thought it was such a great master post of diverse spookies and creatures that more people had to know about it!!

Under the Read More, there is a MASSIVE list of links showing you the immense diversity that exists for fantasy creatures! From Inuit mythology to Filipinx Ghouls, Persian fairies to Nigerian water spirits.

DIVERSITY IS NOT A MYTH FOLKS!

EVEN IN MYTHOLOGY ITSELF!!

GO FORTH AND DIVERSIFY YOUR FANTASIES AND NIGHTMARES!!!
