The members of the Rising Voices Collective are up-and-coming writer-advocates. What is a writer-advocate? Novelly defines a writer-advocate as someone who uses their gifts in writing and storytelling to make a marked difference in the way we view, discuss, and understand topics like race, gender, and sexuality. Writer-advocates believe that we can create a better world through the stories we share.
