Fostering the Power of Diverse Voices Worldwide

For environmental storytelling to be honest, it must be representative.

Plastic Oceans International is pleased to offer a mentoring program for  emerging and under-represented environmental storytellers. It offers opportunities to those who deserve a voice and whose voices we most need to hear from. We are especially interested in storytellers from indigenous communities, the global south, minorities and isolated locations.

The program is open to individuals of all ages and to all mediums of the written word, including journalism, poetry, fiction, and essays.

Our team of professional writers and advisors are experienced journalists (print and broadcast), playwrights, filmmakers, poets, essayists and publishers. They offer customized guidance to participants, along with the opportunity to be published on the Plastic Oceans website; in the pages of our quarterly digital magazine, Currents; and in partnering publications, such as EcoWatch, Cultural Daily, The Yucatan Times and DCReport.

For further information and to apply please email us at: storytellers@plasticoceans.org. Tell us your story. Provide your name, location, the medium you write in and a little bit about your goals as an environmental storyteller.
