NEW YORK, March 16, 2015— An anthology of essays and interviews with over 40 contributors was published on Amazon (paperback and Kindle) today, under the title *Advocating Creatively: Stories of Contemporary Social Change Pioneers*. This book was a project initiated in March 2013 by students at Columbia University’s School of Social Work. The purpose of this project is to compile a set of personal essays, contributed by contemporary social change pioneers who practice creative methods of advocacy to advance social justice, equality, and peace. Inspired by *Days in the Lives of Social Workers* by Linda May Grobman, this book is intended to provide inspiration to individuals interested in creative advocacy and activism, to create a broader sense of community between current practitioners of creative advocacy and activism, and foster greater recognition in the wider professional world of creative advocacy and activism practice. Artists include diverse disciplines including game writing and LARP design, nonfiction writing and memoir, drama, photography, visual art, documentary and film, music performance and writing, and more! This book project is, in and of itself, a ‘meta’ example of ‘advocating creatively,’ since the book’s purpose involves advocating to advance knowledge of ‘advocating creatively’ as a concept.
