Five More Days to Submit to But you don’t LOOK sick: Battles we fight with invisible illness – an Anthology

Indie Blu(e) Publishing is still accepting submissions for an anthology about the lived experience of chronic, invisible physical illness. If you have been diagnosed with such an illness (for example: lupus, MS, fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme disease, migraine headache, etc.) or are a caretaker for someone who has, share your truth with us. We believe that creative expression can enlighten, connect, support, and heal.

Writers and artists can submit up to three pieces of creative work (poetry, prose, essay, and/or original Artwork.)  Pieces of writing should be limited in length (under 1,000 words.)

Using a pen name or publishing anonymously is acceptable.  You will be asked to provide a brief biography (75 words or less) to be included in the anthology.

You will be notified if your work is accepted. Please do not consider non- acceptance as any diminishment of your experience, but as with any publishing venture, we must try to fit the individual pieces together into a strong whole.

Submission of previously published pieces is acceptable if you still own the rights to your work.

Artwork can be submitted in black and white OR color, but all artwork should be black and white compatible.

All submissions should be uploaded to our Submittable page by midnight, Friday, April 19, 2019.

Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month Campaign — April 1, 2019

Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month Campaign

We Will Not Be Silenced is an anthology of original artwork and pieces of poetry, prose, and essay written by survivors of sexual assault and harassment. Featuring 95 writers and artists spanning the globe, this project is an ambitious one lead by indie authors Kindra M. Austin, Candice Louisa Daquin, Rachel Finch, and Christine E. Ray; and, all survivors themselves. 

It’s time that our voices are heard and respected. The editors of We Will Not Be Silenced know the pain of living with secrets. We also know the healing power of art, and the written word. We believe our collective stories can educate, lessen isolation, and inspire. 

We are humbly asking for donations at this time. 100% of the proceeds will be used to get copies of this book to the people who need it most: individual survivors; organizations that provide services for those who have experienced sexual harassment or sexual assault; libraries; university gender studies programs; and other organizations dedicated to dismantling rape culture and reducing the incidence of sexual violence. 

Every donation helps. Every donation counts. Help ensure that survivor of sexual assault or harassment feels alone, feels silenced.
