Tananarive Due

American Book Award-winning author, screenwriter, producer and university lecturer. For more than 20 years, she has been a leading voice in black speculative fiction and horror.

We’re Tananarive Due and Monica A. Coleman, and we are writers, professors and friends who are inspired by the works of Octavia Butler to maintain ideas of self-sufficiency, self-love, empathy, hope, and leadership.

During the global pandemic of 2020, we started having public conversations about the lessons we can learn from the work of Octavia E. Butler, one of the most important science fiction writers of the 20th century. 

We love sharing tactics for thriving while connecting with other readers, creatives, teachers and activists.

So we designed The Shaping Change Bundle

resources for creativity, reflection and inspiration based on self-love, empathy, hope and leadership

The Shaping Change eJournal

Our e-journal based on the 7 principles of shaping change has morning and evening reflection questions. The structure helps build practices of gratitude and presence.
