Our Mission Statement

Charles Darwin wrote that it’s not the strongest or smartest species that survive, it’s the most adaptable. Humanity is going to have to adapt more in this century than any other.

Changes in climate, resources, technology, business, and relations between countries will force us to change how we live, work and think, and our relationships with people and the planet.

Writers will be essential catalysts in bringing about the changes we need. More than ever, we need writers to help us understand the challenges and opportunities ahead of us and inspire and empower us to do what we can to help bring about change.

Technology enables writers to reach readers, and build audiences for their work and constituencies for their ideas faster and more easily than ever. It also provides more ways for them to get their books published than ever. The goal of the Writing for Change Conference is to help writers to write about change, get their work published, and make it succeed.
