Jessica R. Dreistadt, Ph.D.

I have written 11 books including a renegade tween novella, a collection of essays about leadership, and three technical handbooks for people engaged in community work. 

When working toward a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership, I . used portraiture to explore how women leaders with/in progressive social movement organizations engage social division as they construct and experience solidarity.

I share my insights, ideas, and preoccupations through two blogs: Jesstopia and The Activist's Muse.

I'm excited to publish the first issue of Fruition Magazine in the near future.

Visit The Fruition Coalition's bookstore to learn more about my books.
