MANA's Black History Month Publishing Offer For Black, Other Minority, and Marginalized Writers

Writing gives voice to our thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and unlocks our creative potential. Many voices, however, have been marginalized by society, individuals, personal trauma, or in other ways. 

To kick off its 20th year of supporting self-publishing authors, (MANA) has a special offer for Black, other minority, and marginalized writers for Black History Month. MANA is giving authors a chance to get their poems and short stories published at minimal costs in the e-book, MANA's Messengers—2022: A Collection Of Poetry And Short Stories.

Everyone has a story to tell about their experiences, whether it's in the form of poetry or a short story. Stories are a part of our daily lives. If you think about it, not a day goes by when we do not hear, read, or tell a story. Stories tell others who we were in the past, who we are now, and who we want to be in the future. 

Writing gives voice to our thoughts, feelings, and emotions, but some voices are not always heard or appreciated. Unfortunately, the voices of many people have been marginalized for various reasons. Nonetheless, these voices can spring up and force change in society.
