And here, from the publisher’s website, is how the anthology came into being:
It began November 9, 2016, in a message, simple yet with an undercurrent of utter dismay: “What the f!!! do we do now?” Sara asked, her grief and rage overcoming her manners.
“Why are you asking me? I hardly know you.” K-B wasn’t ready for correspondence, having spent the previous day working a polling place giddy with Trump supporters.
“I know from our MFA program that you’re an activist. I’m not, but we have to do something. What do we do?”“Well, we’re writers. …”
So was born Writers Resist. The online literary journal launched at WritersResist.com on December 1, 2016.
After a year of publishing stories, poetry, essays and art from the United States and beyond, Sara and K-B asked each other, “So, what do we do now?”
So was born Writers Resist: The Anthology 2018, with the works of 73 contributors, including, not-yet-known, well-known, and a few notorious writers and artists of the resistance.
