LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It began November 9, 2016, in a message, simple yet with an undercurrent of utter dismay: “What the f–k do we do now?” Sara asked, her grief and rage overcoming her manners.
“Why are you asking me? I hardly know you.” K-B wasn’t ready for correspondence, having spent the previous day working a polling place giddy with Trump supporters.
“I know from our MFA program that you’re an activist. I’m not, but we have to do something. What do we do?”
“Well, we’re writers. …”
So was born Writers Resist. The online literary journal launched at WritersResist.com on December 1, 2016.
After a year of publishing stories, poetry, essays and art from the United States and beyond, Sara and K-B asked each other, “So, what do we do now?”
So was born Writers Resist: Anthology 2018, with the works of 73 contributors, including, not-yet-known, well-known, and a few notorious writers and artists of the resistance.

“DON’T BUY THIS BOOK! The Whacked Out Writers Resist book is BAD. Its FAKE fiction! Poetry doesn’t rhyme! Essays are TOO LONG! Writers are NOT smart! Should be in jail. It goes down as WORST ANTHOLOGY EVER by far! Don't read!
“You’re asking me if it’s irresponsible for the president to try to censor a book? Let’s talk about books. Their publishers are what’s irresponsible. They kill trees. You’d think the liberal elite would be all over that. Many good people are questioning why there are so many books. If God intended Americans to read, books would be growing out in the cabbage patch.”
–Kellyanne Conway, Senior White House Advisor
“Everyone knows Marchant and Gressitt are angry lesbians who can’t edit or write. Living proof of what happens when you educate women and let them vote.”
