Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to helping this urgently timely body of work come into being, to all the incredible poets and artist who have lent their voices to the poetic resistance – I am overwhelmed and overjoyed with the power of this collection we have put together.”

Advanced Review of Rise (an anthology of Power and Unity) by John Curl at PEN West Oakland:

“These are songs of standing up to darkness and transforming it into music. The creative processes these poets use to channel their visionary works, are the same creative processes that we channel in revolutionary struggle in the streets or the halls of power.”

“What is really happening behind the smoke and mirrors? Why is it happening? What—if anything—can we do about it?”

“The poems in this anthology are forged in the politics of revolt. They are conjurations, spells to envelop our consciousness through sounds and images, music and meanings.”

“Constructive social change needs a high level of consciousness, and these poems leave us strengthened in our struggle to leave a livable world to our grandchildren.”

“Keep this book beside your pillow, let it fill your dreams.”
