We are a group of authors who believe in the necessity of climate action, immediately and absolutely.

Fiction is one of the best ways to inspire passion, empathy and action in readers. Our works raise awareness of climate change, and encourage action at the individual, corporate and government levels.

“A body of writers working for a common cause cannot fail to influence public opinion.” – Women Writers Suffrage League, 1908

How You Can Help

Read & Discuss

We write about climate change because we want to start a conversation about how society can start to fix planetary pollution. If you enjoy our works, please share and discuss to keep the conversation going. The best way to support authors is through reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and your local bookshop’s website.

Start Writing

Anyone could write the next, great climate change novel. Why not pick up a pen, and use your passion for climate activism to create something special today?
