Street Team Call for Voices of the Future: Stories of Courage & Compassion

by Kellyn Roth |
February 28, 2024


I’m getting published in an anthology.


There are a couple things that make this story and this anthology really important and really fun.

  1. This story features a character you know and love, if you’re a long-time reader.
  2. Even if you don’t know and love the character, you’ll want to support our mission.

Because specifically, my story is being published in the Author Conservatory‘s second Voices of the Future anthology: Stories of Courage & Compassion!

Let’s start with the “supporting our mission” bit. I’ll circle back around to the “character you know and love” another time. 😉

Voices of the Future is a collection of short stories written by students of the Author Conservatory FOR THE PURPOSE of supporting young writers.

To describe the purpose a little better:

Voices of the Future is our beacon, a platform where our voices as young aspiring authors are heard for the first time. It’s our chance to share our dreams, our hopes, and our tales with the world.

100% of every purchase of this anthology goes to help Author Conservatory students attend writing conferences so we can pitch our books to agents and editors.

That’s right! This book not only allows us to share our work with the world, but also paves the way for this writing dream to become a reality.

Though I’m not necessarily pursuing traditional publishing, the other writers are, and I want to see this anthology go far. We’re launching on April 23rd, 2024, and we’ll have a cover reveal in March.

For that reason,

Okay, I kid, I kid. (Though hey, if you feel led to buy a copy when the book goes up for preorder later this month, please do!)

No, actually, my real request is that you join my street team, Mrs. Roth’s Society Column. If you’re already in the group, great – you’ll receive an email soon with details.

If not, fill out the form below:

If you don’t know, a street team is a group of people who want to support this release and help us reach our writer conference goal. You don’t have to be a writer yourself or a social media influencer or anything like that to join up.

In fact, I’d be more than welcome to have my Uncle Ernie on this street team … if I had an Uncle Ernie, which I don’t. 🙁

(Will you be my Uncle Ernie?)

It’s not a big commitment; it’s just a “do what you can” kind of thing. You can do it whether you have social media or not, whether you can commit to buying the book or not, etc. (That said, of course, if you’re able to purchase a copy of the book, that option will definitely be made open to you!)

As a part of the street team, you’ll get to read the anthology before anyone else. ALSO … if you’re a member of this street team and participate, there will be prizes, goodies, and so on made available to you.

If you want to know more, just hit reply and let me know!

Otherwise, just stay tuned! I’ll be sharing the cover and more exciting news soon!

Thank you so much!
