We’re so happy and excited with the submissions we’ve received and we look forward to building interest in the anthology and impacting change. Moving forward, as we edit, work with a publisher, and get the book to market, we want to be able to give the contingent a platform to speak and connect. We’d like to use this space to build a participatory commons based on the power of performative writing. We believe this can foster learning, encourage solidarity, and build social empathy. By working together and engaging with a public beyond the book, we can envision and build new progressive solutions.
