We Will Not Be Silenced Honored by Toi Magazine — April 25, 2019

We Will Not Be Silenced Honored by Toi Magazine

The editors of Indie Blue Publishing were thrilled and honored when we were contacted by Toi Magazine about We Will Not Be Silenced: The Lived Experience of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Told Powerfully Through Poetry, Prose, Essay, and Art. Editor-in-chief Autumn Farr had stumbled across WWNBS, and was deeply moved by it.

She asked if it could be featured as a resource in the magazine’s April/May 2019 Issue which highlights the mental weight of sexual assault. They interviewed all of the editors and created a four page spread about the book! We are beyond excited to see WWNBS get the recognition we think it deserves. You can read the full issue online but we ask that you consider supporting the wonderful folks at Toi magazine by buying a print copy of the issue.

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.
