Behind the marathon meetings, the hours of diligent preparation, and the methodical work involved in making social change, heartbreaking, hair raising, life affirming stories lie hidden. Too often these stories remain invisible or are co-opted by the corporate media in sensationalistic ways to serve the status quo. How do we as activists transform our lived experiences into page-turning, imaginative fiction that can move both activist readers and people who have never participated in a social movement?
And who are your favorite radical storytellers?
