imagine how difficult some of these pieces were to write However, it could be argued that the reader is under no obligation to bear witness.This is why the collection works It never feels like the submissions were accepted on any other standard than that of the writing By including such a vast and diverse collection of writing, there is something that will appeal to each reader I found some intensely personal and honest to a point of discomfort and then others were highly stylised and literary This anthology is important but it is also an anthology of talented writing flag 2 likesLike

the world, on putting together our responses and feelings about today s climate of sexual harassment and sexual assault Whilst you may consider this a bleak and depressing subject and it is true, all of us wish it were not a subject needing highlighting, the reality is anything but melancholy I find everyone who has worked on this and proof read it, is uplifted by the courage, compassion, determination and strength of these survivors and their voices Together we are stronger This publication is a must for anyone who seeks the truth and owns their own voice We will not be silenced is a

Lessons about letting your shame fly away in the breeze even if you can still taste blood in your mouth Lessons about the strength you can find in your scars Lessons about women and men about how this can happen to anyone about how this is not your fault, never was and never will be As a piece of art raised from an eclectic collective, the work ebbs and flows with the gentle power of the current down stream each piece moving the reader in familiar and unfamiliar ways The editing is thoughtful and allows every writer space to breathe as an individual and yet remain part of the whole the heart and soul of We Will Not Be Silenced In fact, I would love to share my favourite pieces but I would end up quoting the whole book With Austin, Daquin, Finch and Ray at the helm, We Will Not Be Silenced

about it, maybe just maybe we will be able to save someone from enduring some of, or escaping from, their own.To be honest, as a contributor, I m not sure what else to say other than the fact that I feel this is important for everyone to become aware of these issues running rampant across the world This is definitely a cause I believe in, because, as a victim myself, I want to help as many people
