An explanation from Blue Crow Publishing: “Own voices” means that if you are writing a main character who is part of marginalized group, you are part of that marginalized group. If you are writing a trans* main character, you are a trans* person. If you are writing about an American Indian main character, you are American Indian. If you are writing about a disabled main character, you are disabled. And so on.

Whovian_reads_books Kimberley (life_of_a_reader) | 9 comments A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini should suit the prompt. I read The Kite Runner and just loved it, so beautiful but sad, lots of emotion in it.
