“Detroit is a city of stories. In this way, we are rich. We begin with abundance.” So begins editor Anna Clark’s introduction to A Detroit Anthology, hot off the press from Rust Belt Chic Press. With an abundance of genre and experience represented in this city-centric anthology, locals and visitors alike will find an assortment of perspectives, memories, and depictions of where Detroit lands on the literary map.
Contributors to this collection include Grace Lee Boggs, John Carlisle, Desiree Cooper, dream hampton, Steve Hughes, Jamaal May, Tracie McMillan, Marsha Music, Shaka Senghor, Thomas J. Sugrue, and many others. Belt Magazine, part of the Rust Belt brand, offers a full portrait of what to expect in this latest anthology online here.
