Stop being confined to boring stories that mean nothing to you.

At RIZE, we know you want to be entertained with stories that represent you, not some stereotype. You crave spellbinding narratives and innovative prose written by people of color. The problem is that there’s very little diversity in publishing and minority writers are rarely celebrated, which makes you feel invisible. We believe that your voice should be heard from the treetops. You should have a chance to hear amazing stories told by diverse authors. We understand the demand for this approach, and that’s why we created RIZE.

Here’s how it works: Scroll through our catalog of stories written by people of color, pick your favorites, and purchase. It’s that simple. Check out our stories today so that you can have your voice amplified and celebrated.

“Running Wild Press curates an incredibly wonderful collection of new and experienced voices, innovative storytelling, and diversity…and in doing so digs real gold from today’s literary landscape. Brava!” -Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of GLIMPSE and V-WARS
