Novelly is a non-profit publisher building the largest digital library of literature by underrepresented youth, so that every student can feel seen and empowered by what they read.
The Rising Voices Collective
Members of the Rising Voices Collective are author-advocates who:
Published a piece of short fiction or "novella" in the Novelly library
Use their gifts in writing and storytelling to celebrate diverse lived experiences
Believe that we can create a more inclusive world through the stories we share
RVC is not just a creative writing program. Here, teenagers access a support team to publish and promote their work.
The SPEAK Activist Network
With book bans and challenges on the rise, students across the country are exercising their right to read. As part of the SPEAK! Activist Network, students support one another as they immerse themselves in the freedom to read movement and fight to diversify bookshelves in their communities.
Kick off your lessons with a 10-minute conversation from the Novelly library! Our ready-to-go slides include quotes from published youth-written literature and youth-vetted discussion questions to engage and energize your students.
