Belt Publishing’s anthologies, written by and for Rust Belt communities, include compilations from Akron, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton, Detroit, Flint, Pittsburgh, and Youngstown. And now, Grand Rapids!
Ashley E. Nickels and Dani Vilella will co-edit this collection of stories to be written by and about Grand Rapids’ grassroots activists, writers, and creatives. Both Nickels, an Assistant Professor of Political Science, and Vilella, a state-wide political and advocacy field manager, have helped organize a host of grassroots protests, campaigns, and initiatives in Grand Rapids and beyond.
If you use the Kickstarter platform to order any Belt title, you will you receive a great book of writing by and from the Rust Belt and provide support for the publishing costs of Grand Rapids’ Grassroots: An Anthology. Win-win!
Meanwhile, keep up to date with the project’s progress by visiting the Grand Rapids Grassroots Anthology Facebook page.
