Your book will change

the world.

We’ll help you write it.

You know your story is powerful,
but you don’t know how to write it
(or edit it… or design it… or publish it).

We love powerful stories, and we’ve got decades of experience transforming them into world-changing books.

Sounds like a match made in heaven!

Page and Podium started with a story.

Lots of stories, actually.

Amanda Nell Edgar always loved telling stories. As a kid, she scrawled them in books of wallpaper samples that her grandmother scavenged from home supply stores. After college, she took to the stage, telling stories to rural children as part of a grant-funded theatre program. Finally, she became a social movement historian, documenting the stories behind groups like Black Lives Matter.

Those were the stories that lit the spark for Page & Podium Press.

The stories of ordinary people who overcame the odds 

The stories of leaders who spoke out against injustice, no matter the cost

The stories of communities who built something beautiful from the ashes of trauma

These stories weren’t just interesting.

These stories moved people.

As a social movement historian, Amanda published dozens of stories in academic journals and books, but always under her own name.

Then, a community leader reached out for help. He knew his story was powerful. He knew it could help people if it were told the right way. 

He wanted to write a book. But he just wasn’t a writer.

She was.

Amanda knew how to draw out people’s most vulnerable stories—

she’d been doing it for years.

She knew how to write an engaging narrative—

she’d won numerous awards for her books and articles.

Most importantly, she knew what it meant to fight for social change. She’d spent countless afternoons in the sun, rain, and snow holding signs, leading chants, and bearing witness to injustice.

When that first leader held his memoir in his hands, Amanda finally understood her purpose. If she could help visionary leaders—like you—tell their stories, she could change the world one reader at a time.

So she founded a new kind of publishing company—
one that helps leaders like you leverage the
world-changing power of books.

That company is Page & Podium Press.

Your Behind-The-Scenes Team

No matter who writes it—no matter how much help you get—your book is yours.

Something amazing happens when you hold your book in your hands. When you share your experiences with thousands of people. When you articulate your message with bold, fearless confidence. 

We’ve seen it again and again—people who once shrugged and said, “I’m just not a writer,” suddenly step into their role as a published author.

That kind of transformation deserves
some serious celebration!

That’s why we always have celebratory champagne chilling in the fridge.

As the pre-orders roll in, we toast!

Land your first paid speaking gig? Cheers!

And when you get that first email—the one from the person who reminds you so much of yourself, the person who needed that story to keep going—we happy cry right along with you.

That’s what community is all about.
