A project of truth telling
Many of us have posted one form or another of creative writing on this site. I believe most of us also have works that have never been posted as well. Our works together could create a very large, very loud, very truth and telling volume of our experiences.
Currently, I am compiling and editing my own written work for publishing by end of next year. I would like to welcome any of you, interested in participating in a collective project, to shoot me an email so we can discuss your work as a contribution the anthology.
I will not be purchasing your written work. I have a contract created that only allows me to use your work for the purpose of this publication but with the stipulation of as many editions as needed.
The intention is to donate the largest percentage possible to organizations that are dedicated to telling the truth. All contributing writers will be in close communication as the details develop.
There is a second phase to this project, that is still in development. That is the marketing of the final product. This is where the book will do the most good and reach many people.
The idea behind this is two fold;
1. To let each of us share our talent for taking painful situations and creating beautiful things.
2. To help support others who have already begun to actively work towards change.
I am also interested in any visual art, or musical productions that might be included in the final version.
You can remain anonymous in the publishing process. I am open to questions, this project is in the development stage right now.
Thanks for reading. And please contribute!
