Good news, readers and followers! At least 6 of my poems will be published in an upcoming anthology called You are Not Alone: Stories from the Frontlines of Womanhood. This anthology was inspired by #Yesallwomen. If you don’t know about #YesallWomen, it was a phenomenon that swept across the globe for a month, one of the longest-trending hashtags in Twitter history, and was all about women’s experiences of violence, harassment, objectification, and discrimination simply for being women.
None of the participants featured in the anthology, including the editor Leah Carey, are the originators of the hashtag. The hashtag began with a tweet by @gildedspine (Kaye). The work in this anthology are by writers who began participating in #YesallWomen about a month after its creation. We aren’t the source, we were simply inspired.
The following are small samples of two of the poems I wrote that will be published in the book:
