Change Makers Apply Here!

Are you a change maker who wants to share your story so you can inspire others?  Have you overcome abuse, violence or a failed system?  Have you improved your community despite numerous obstacles?  This is your chance to share what positive changes you have made so that others can follow in your footsteps.

  • Your story must tell the what, why, and how you overcame your bad situation. It must contain a sort of blueprint so that when others read it they will be able to use your experience as a tool to improve their own life or community.
  • Non-Fiction only! Fictitious stories will not be considered. Your story needs a photo too.  It can be of you/example of your work/community photos  or one that you designed to illustrate your experiences and anything else that shows what you went through.
  • Grammar is important.  If you send in a story with poor grammar it will not be considered. Stories must be in English.  A misspelled word is fine, but a lot of bad grammar will automatically void your submission.
  • Important Issues: Everybody has a story that matters, but we cannot publish everything.  Below are suggested issues.
  1. Overcoming physical, emotional, and sexual abuse or crime.
  2. Overcoming gangs, pollution, or corruption in your community.
  3. Overcome poverty, migration, racial, sexual, gender, or cultural prejudices.
  4. Activism for the environment, politics, human rights and freedom of speech.

All stories will be reviewed prior to publication and not all stories will make the cut.  Below are the guidelines for submission.

Look What’s New

Thank you for reading Impower You.  My hope is that you find the information here useful and that it inspires you to make change in your life or community. I have added new pages to the site with information for everyone.  There is now a page for Critical Thinking, a page of Activism Art to encourage dissenters, a curriculum on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace, and a how-to for effective Problem Solving.

There is also a writing program that pays for stories of social action. Whether you overcame abuse or improved your community, you are invited to share a blueprint of your success so others can improve themselves and their communities.  The Survivor-Writer Program is open to anyone with a story to share and hope to give.

Our Indie Artists and Indie Authors pages are a great way to promote your art and books to a broader audience.

I started a fundraising campaign to both pay for the first stories I want to publish AND to further market Impower You to a larger segment of the population. Please join my campaign and consider contributing a $1 at IndieGoGo.co
