Who we are
A big bunch of movie, TV-and-book-loving, inclusivity-obsessed, would-be world-changers. We’re as tired of the same old stories as you are, and we’ve come together to do something about it!
What we do
At Narrative Muse, we want to transform the entertainment industry by connecting audiences with the best books, movies, and TV by and about women and gender diverse people. We do this with our recommendation matchmaker that matches book lovers and movie/TV buffs with personalized recommendations based on taste, identity, and how they want to feel.
Who we’re looking for
You! We are looking for curators!
What do curators do? Data is crucial to our platform becoming smarter and better at identifying matches for our users. Curation, then, is the core of Narrative Muse. As a curator, you’re helping to elevate and showcase books, movies, and TV by and about women and gender diverse folk by telling us all about stories you’ve loved. As a curator, you will fill in a data survey for each book, movie, and TV series that you would like to curate for our audiences.
Note: Currently, our priority is curation in order to help our users find the best recommendations for books and movies that we can offer. We do however continue to accept voluntary review submissions that meet our criteria of being written, screen-written, directed, or having a leading character that is a woman or gender diverse person.
Reviewers: Our reviews aim to provide your personal perspective along with a sense of the work’s characters, plot, setting, and pacing. At the end, the reader should feel like they were part of a fascinating conversation about a book, movie, or series. Our reviewers should be able to understand a range of views and opinions, and write reviews in a compelling, knowledgeable and inclusive way, adhering to the Narrative Muse style guides.
Narrative Muse is an impact-driven startup that's transitioning from a fully volunteer-based organization to a paid model. Right now we offer an awesome community and a modest rewards system for quality curations (you’re free to be as active as you like), while looking ahead to a global future with curators all over the world!
