We thank you for taking the time out of your day to visit our site. Saving Lives Through Lit is dedicated to our mission of Saving Lives Through Literature! This is a vision of founder Elizabeth Funderbirk. In 2011 she approached friend and fellow author Kiexiza Rodriquez about her vision and together they made it a reality.
Realizing that domestic violence has been an issue for decades, these two ladies have a strong desire to bring awareness to those affected by this senseless crisis. Together they have enlisted talented writers and the creative services of their peers in the literary community to create an anthology, build a media buzz, and establish a web presence that will be directly used to further their mission.
This Non-Profit venture is being presented to the public by the generous DONATIONS and SPONSORSHIP of people like you. Our goal is to shed light on a topic that, for centuries, has been quietly swept under the rug. There are many organizations that deal with the issues that men, women, and children living with domestic violence and other abuses face on a daily basis. We at S.L.T.L. want to be representatives of those in the literary community who desire to lend their voices/pens and talents to bring about an end to the silence.
What better way than to join together, do what we love and create the stories behind the many faces. We will expose these stories..the ones we never hear about, the ones we silently ignore; some of which the author themselves have actually endured. It is our hopes that our openness with in turn open your eyes, ears and hearts to this reality.
Our prayer is that our efforts are met with an abundance of support. Proving what we know in our hearts to be true; we can all be a part of the Movement to end Domestic Violence, thereby Saving Lives Through Lit.
