Authorable is a national school-based program
where kids vote to publish books to help their local community.
HOW IT WORKS
Classrooms across the country vote to help make decisions about a children's book as it's being made
Students journey behind-the-scenes
of publishing a book directly with the author, illustrator, and editor
“Authorable Schools” keep 100% of their book proceeds for students to give back to their local community
Developed by an educator
Easy for teachers to use
"This really engaged our students!"

Student involvement from
41 states and 26 countries
10/10 Students said they
wanted to help with the next book
100% of teachers said

Principals across the country
have nominated their schools for the Fall 2021 waitlist
Taking an active role in the publishing process and voting on the details of a REAL book created a deeply meaningful experience that connected students to reading and writing. We can't wait to participate again this fall!

BENEFITS OF AUTHORABLE
Values Student Voices
Students feel heard, seen, and inspired through interaction with the author as a book is made in real time
the Learning Gap
Teachers are able to integrate the excitement of “publishing a book” into their grade-level curriculum. Teachers can even submit requests for specific book-themed classroom materials to be created!
Each school’s book revenue outweighs the cost of the program. We guarantee your students will make more for the community than what the program costs, or the difference will be refunded.
Helps Support Teachers
We know teachers have a lot on their plate. All videos and materials are classroom-ready and intended to reduce workload.
to Have Fun
After such a hard year, we intentionally deliver a positive, spontaneous energy to help motivate and engage students.
Provides Social & Emotional Support
Authorable’s focus on confronting potentially difficult topics through kindness, openness, and understanding provides built-in social and emotional support as students transition into a new school year.
Provides an Innovative Approach
Our award-winning program provides a unique student experience by allowing each child to BE AN AUTHOR and participate in making a #1 Best selling book, with only 15 minutes of class time required.
Through planning a book launch event and using the book proceeds toward a local community-action project, students learn about philanthropy and entrepreneurship.
Gives Back to
Each “Authorable School” keeps 100% of their book proceeds and then students choose how to best help their community.
As educators, we can’t help it. We always build in conversations to support and reinforce strong character traits, such as resiliency, compassion, teamwork, perspective, and leadership. Character matters to us!
"I asked the kids what their favorite part was and hands down, they said voting!”

- S. Hammond,
Third Grade Teacher
Be your school’s hero by giving them the chance to publish a best-selling book. Your students can feel ownership this school year while using their skills to help others in the community.
