Reese Witherspoon has decided to up the book game for underrepresented women in literature but starting a platform through her Reese’s Book Club felllowship called LitUp.
Witherspoon believes that there are many powerful stories out here, but their voices are going unheard. The bottom line is that these authors and their stories need to be read, and LitUp will be the launchpad for authors in this new generation so that they have the resources to build great careers as authors.
Requirements for LitUp are:
Authors must be unpublished
Authors must not have an agent
Authors must be recognized as a woman and be of diverse background.
Protagonist of story must be female.
Story must be young adult.
