Changemaker Authors Program



Our Changemaker Authors Conference is a two-day virtual conference designed to orient movement folks to the publishing industry and the process of writing a book. The conference will be open to all and will feature authors and publishers discussing how a book can transform a sociopolitical narrative, what to expect when writing about personal and community trauma, and other elements of authoring social change. This event is free and open to the public.


When: Saturday, April 29, 1pm-5:30pm ET

          Sunday, April 30, 1pm-5:30pm ET

Accessibility: ASL and Spanish-language interpretation will be available.

The Changemaker Authors Cohort supports full-time social justice practitioners to develop books that will create durable narrative change and restructure the way people feel, think, and respond to the world. The program is co-created by Narrative Initiative and the Unicorn Authors Club, and partially resourced by the Ford Foundation.

We will launch a second Changemaker Authors cohort of full-time movement leaders and social justice practitioners, each of whom will receive up to a year of intensive coaching and support. Our goal is for our authors to have a submittable package for publishers by the end of the program.
