Our mission is to:

Amplify voices that have been sidelined

Everyone has a story to tell. Here’s mine...

Hi! I’m Dr. Marina Rivera Gillmore, the founder of Full Circle Press

As an educator and consultant, I would attend large conferences around the country. I loved hearing speakers share important stories of transformation, hope and community.

These speakers had stories like yours, where they:

During these conferences, I’d wander the speakers’ booths. 

I was so disappointed to find these leaders and change makers didn’t have a book to share their stories with wider audiences.

Or worse.

Some speakers had written and self-published, but didn’t feel proud of how their books looked. Sad design. Awkward flow. Grammar and spelling errors.

"It broke my heart to see these powerful stories being hidden and overlooked because of lousy design. Or because their book hadn’t been written yet."

And I get it.

Writing and publishing a book is hard.

It takes discipline, time and confidence to write. It’s sometimes lonely.

And then there’s the stress of figuring out how to publish and get your story out there.

It’s a lot of work.

But I couldn’t leave these important stories untold.

I wanted to provide a platform for educators and change makers to share their stories – without sacrificing their autonomy and authority.

And that’s why Full Circle Press was born.

Full Circle Press takes the stress & guesswork out of writing your first - or your next - book.

Our team knows first-hand how overwhelming (and sometimes lonely) it can be to write and publish your story.

The FCP Team are all published (or soon-to-be published) authors. 

We’ve been in your shoes. 

We’ve suffered the same self-doubt and criticism.

It’s important to surround yourself with people who’ve been there before to guide and support your author’s journey.

And to laugh and probably cry a little with you, too.

The Full Circle Press community and resources give you the support we wish we had when we wrote our stories.
