Rebecca Swift

Publishing revolutionary -- via the Guardian. She conceived of and co-founded with Hannah Griffiths the Literary Consultancy, which bravely decided to offer editorial input to all writers (in English), anywhere. It became a many-pronged agent of change -- providing mentorships, breaking the market open for low-income, unconnected, marginalized, and dismissed writers, doing think tanks, and the like.
