Independent Publishing soon to open its doors to new manuscripts!
Weasel Press has started calling for submissions for a special poetry anthology. There is no name for it as of yet but over the coming months we’ll have a working title. The purpose of this project is to provide shelter; to bring awareness and encourage others to get involved with pressing issues. Poetry has always been a healing factor for a vast majority of people in the world. The public soak up poetry in the roughest of times; it simply takes a few words to soothe the wounded. That is the type of work we are looking for in this anthology. There is a wealth of social justice issues that we look at, some of which include: Sexuality, Rape Culture, Bullying, Animal Rights, Education, Immigration, homelessness, and a lot more. The list is not exhaustive and we welcome a variety of topics that encourage communities to become more involved. Passionate poets can email their work to:
