Los Angeles Poet Society Press bears fruit!
In a call for submissions last year, in response to the call for action, to stand up for Black Lives Matter, to stand up for justice and equality, after the murder of George Floyd, Los Angeles Poet Society Press was born. 2020. A year marked into our memories.
Writings, memories, poems, and through art and photograph, we witness the response of the people, a collective that makes up our debut publication:
