Call for Submissions-Anthology: Letters to My Bully (Glover Lane Press)
Edited by Azaan Kamau and Ifalade Ta’Shia Asanti

Letters to My Bully is a collection of letters, short stories (fiction or non-fiction), poetry and essays from authors across the world that speaks to the traumatic and sometimes fatal impact of bullying.

At some point we all have been bullied by somebody, for some ridiculous reason or another! I think it’s time we talk about it from our own perspective and give voice to the situations that have shaped our ideology. Some people were bullied while children at the school, bullied in the pulpit and sometimes like in my case….even at home.

I think these stories/ letters must be shared.  Basically what I’m saying, “It happened to me too. . .tell me your story.”

Who were you bullied by?
This is a book about an evolution of the human psyche….it is a quantum leap in spirit and in consciousness! Letters to My Bully is also an educational and preventative tool for parents, educators, teens and youth, as well as a channel for healing and empowerment for bullying victims and survivors.
