Romance readers of all backgrounds, communities and cultures enjoy stories that celebrate love and happiness. At Harlequin, we’re actively working to acquire books by a diverse community of writers whose stories include a wide variety of characters, themes, experiences and perspectives.

We’re working in many different ways to build diversity, equity and inclusion into author outreach, deepen inclusion in our publishing programs, and help readers discover a wide variety of authors and stories for their reading wish lists.
