Calling all Writers& Artists– Submission Call: 8-West Press!

Hey there!

I’ve been kinda MIA on this blog for a bit, once again, and I’m here to explain myself!

One of the reasons I haven’t been posting to this blog for a bit, is that I’ve started up a new project. This project is an independent Poetry press, 8-West Press. We will be publishing a variety of poetry and art. In light of recent events, I think we might all agree that we need art more now than ever, to make sense of and find beauty in this world we live in.

A little bit about 8-West: We aim to devote space to the voices of a diverse selection of writers in the work we feature, and have a strong desire to highlight the work of underrepresented groups, particularly people of color, members of the LGBTQIA community, and women. We look forward to 8-West functioning as the route which connects dynamic voices into one richly textured poetic landscape. Read our full MISSION STATEMENT here.
