Shout Mouse Press

Shout Mouse Press is a nonprofit writing program and publishing house that amplifies unheard voices.

For more information, visit their website.


Through writing workshops that lead to professional publication, we empower those from marginalized backgrounds to tell their own stories in their own voices and, as published authors, to act as leaders and agents of change.

Description of Education Initiatives: In partnership with other nonprofits serving communities in need, we are building a catalog of mission-driven books by unheard voices. Our authors have produced original children's books, memoir and poetry collections, and novels-in-stories that expand empathy, engage the disenfranchised, affirm the vulnerable, and increase understanding of unheard perspectives.
