We Will Not Be Silenced: The Lived Experience of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Told Powerfully Through Poetry, Prose, Essay, and Art is the result of survivors feeling compelled to do something after the strongly triggering Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings. Ultimately, it was decided to advocate, educate, and resist through art by creating an anthology. The final collection includes 166 pieces of writing and art from 95 contributors around the globe.
The truth matters,
our stories matter,
and you can help.
We Will Not Be Silenced is now available in print and Kindle editions and reached #1 in Amazon’s New Releases in several categories.
Reviews are trickling in and they are overwhelmingly positive. Check them out here and here. I even had a few things to say about it here.
To help spread awareness about this important book, the editors and many contributors will be participating in two live Facebook events. The first takes place on Friday, November 30th from 4-7 PM EST. The second on Friday, December 7th from 7-10 PM EST. There is also going to be a big giveaway going on, including a short, exclusive chapbook of my own (emailed as a PDF), so it’s definitely worth checking out.
Here’s more info about my exclusive giveaway.
In addition to these live events, the editors and contributors will be sharing various details and information across their social media channels. Feel free to do the same.
The editors decided early on that this was a project of passion and compassion, not profit. Find further information about the use of royalties earned from this anthology here.
To help provide copies to others who might not otherwise be able to afford them, please visit the Go Fund Me page.
For individuals and organizations such as rape crisis centers, gender studies departments, and public libraries that that would like to receive a copy, but otherwise are not able to afford one can be added to a Wish List by emailing the editors at email@example.com.
Special thanks to the editors
for graciously including me
