Welcome to Narrative Muse. We think you’ll like it here.
To transform the entertainment landscape into one that embraces diversity, values great stories by and about women and non-binary people, and fosters talented storytellers without bias.
Narrative Muse was created to connect audiences with women and non-binary authors’ and filmmakers’ work and foster a sense of community between like-minded people. Our relationship with our community is what will enable us to achieve our mission. Our community includes the audiences of women and non-binary filmmakers’ and authors’, the filmmakers and authors themselves, and other like-minded people and organizations acting within the wider social context.
Narrative Muse commits to being a space that welcomes users of all ages, ethnicities, cultures, religious backgrounds and from across the entire length of the gender and sexuality spectrums. Language, actions and content must not exclude users or make any user feel as though they are not welcome in the Narrative Muse community. Any user that promotes language or action that contravenes our values will not be allowed to participate in the Narrative Muse community.
Narrative Muse recognizes the importance of diverse voices and diverse stories within our organization, within the entertainment industry and throughout the wider community. We commit to promoting racial, ethnic, religious, sexual and gender diversity through our work and we endeavor to create a more diverse landscape in the film and publishing industries.
Narrative Muse must maintain a state of openness. This openness flows two ways: 1) transparency from Narrative Muse to our users, ensuring they know where we’re at, what we’re doing, and what we’re thinking; and 2) openness to diverse users as well as to the ideas and, equally as important, the feedback and criticism of those users. We commit to sharing our journey with our users and to creating a safe community space for our users to share ideas that are potentially different from ours, that criticize us, or that offer us opportunities to evolve. As long as ideas are shared with respect and do not denigrate anyone for any reason, they are welcome in Narrative Muse.
Respect must be maintained at all times: for users, for content creators, for dissenting opinions, for challengers to Narrative Muse actions and decisions, and for anyone else. This does not prohibit disagreement or discussion. It means that disagreement and discussion will respect and acknowledge the opposing position and each person’s right to share their position safely. Disrespectful language or users are not welcome in the Narrative Muse community.
Narrative Muse endeavors to provide only accurate, fact-checked information regarding the realities of the movie and publishing industries. We aim to ensure the information we propagate is worthy of our name and to provide attribution to the original source material. If/when we release information that is not accurate, we will acknowledge our mistake and be open to the responses and reactions of our users and the wider community. Narrative Muse is built on trust and safety, and accuracy is a pillar of establishing that trust and safety.
