Welcome to The Unknown Authors Club!

Being unknown brought them together, but disappointment deepened their friendship.

Jodi, Rachael and Leslee met during a writing cohort in March 2021 with optimistic hopes of one day becoming published, best-selling authors. 

With their proposals ready to go, they started submitting their work to agents and publishers. However, when the emails started rolling in — along with silent rejections, verbal “no’s” and “we love your project, but your platform isn’t big enough” — they banded together to create what they wanted to be a part of. 

Enter the Unknown Authors Club. A place for authors who write but struggle to gain traction, bloggers who tell stories but have no audience, and readers who love the thrill of discovering their next favorite author. This club is for all of us!

Through the Unknown Authors Club, we are joining hands and micro-audiences to create a platform for unknown authors to be published and celebrated, regardless of influencer status. Through our monthly newsletters and upcoming anthologies, we will showcase the writing of some of the best authors you haven’t yet read.

Founded by 3 aspiring authors who were unwilling to take “you need a bigger platform” as a reason for not getting published. Together we created a safe harbor for unknown authors to be celebrated and published, regardless of their influencer status.
