Partners in the Lit in Colour campaign

We’re proud to be supporting the Lit in Colour campaign. Launched by Penguin Books UK, alongside race equality think tank The Runnymede Trust, Lit in Colour aims to support schools in diversifying the teaching of English and to increase students’ access to texts by writers of colour and from minority ethnic backgrounds.

We’re putting a spotlight on plays and drama.

Our established play portfolio, under our Methuen Drama imprint, supports and expands the Lit in Colour campaign by introducing new plays by writers of colour that create representative and inclusive drama experiences in schools.

Supporting us in this campaign is our wonderful Advisory Panel, mezze eade, Pooja Ghai and Hannah Khalil, helping to guide and shape our play text offering, and resources for teachers and students.
