Resist With Every Inch and Every Breath Anthology - Poetry (Go to Fiction)
Lonely Cryptid Media

Stories of resistance and rebellion, but also of the steps in between and the change that comes after.

People around the world rise up and resist those who hold power over them. In the middle of an unprecedented global pandemic, oppression persists and is magnified as crises lay bare the systemic inequalities within societies around the world. This anthology will invite us to reflect on this moment, but also imagine a world beyond it. What will happen if the momentum of Black Lives Matter carries us through and ends state violence? What does a world post-Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) look like? What does a world without any borders at all look like? What will be the result of teachers’ and athletes’ strikes? How might we forestall climate catastrophe and work towards climate utopia instead? How can a pandemic be a time to come together even as we stay apart? What does a post-oppression world have in store for us? What will be the outcome of resistance to injustice? What does the future hold?

Tell us about resistance big and small; real and imagined; rooted in reality or fantastical in nature; science fictional or science factual; historical, contemporary, or in the future. The everyday resistance of women. The power of youth and children’s rebellions. Resistance in the streets. The dismantling of white supremacy. Overthrowing colonial states. Empowering workers and undoing capitalism itself.

Give us your hopes and dreams, but also give us the messy work of making those dreams a reality. With all the work ahead of us, we’re looking for stories that spark our utopic imaginations as well as roadmaps to that brighter future. We want work that is honest about the difficulties of struggle against oppression without shying away from the incredible joy and fulfillment this work can bring.
