The Liberation Fund is an initiative from Liberation is Lit to provide free or discounted books, workshops/classes, and book coaching to community members in need. But before we can provide these things, we need your help to raise $75k to open our doors in Columbia, SC!

This $75k will go toward:⁠

🏠 A year's worth of rent⁠

🧑🏾‍💻 Hiring staff (at a living wage)⁠

💰 Utility, tax, and permit support⁠

📚 Renovating/outfitting the space and inventory⁠

Owner, Tayler Simon's new book on self-publishing.

Embark on a transformative journey into the world of self-publishing with "Writing Our Truths," a comprehensive guide crafted specifically for BIPOC writers ready to share their unique narratives with the world.

Tayler Simon, a self-publishing book coach that specializes in working with BIPOC, queer, trans, and disabled writers, guides you through the process of harnessing your unique voice in order to spark change and connection in a wounded world.

In a literary and academic landscape that often echoes uniformity and gatekeeps access, this book serves as a beacon, inviting BIPOC writers to reclaim their voices, stories, and cultural truths. From the inception of an idea to the triumphant moment of publication, this guide navigates the intricate path of self-publishing to empower BIPOC writers to become architects of their own literary destinies.
