For many, 2021 has been a continuation of the difficulties of 2020. Our world has been irrevocably changed by the deaths of so many and the uncertainty due to Covid.
Indie Blu(e), like so many other micro and small publishers, has tried their best to weather the economic uncertainty that the Pandemic has wrought. Bringing out As the World Burns was our voice in these turbulent days.
Despite ups and downs and some pretty lean times, we’ve survived the storm and hope to continue to publish astounding voices in 2022. Our lineup is not yet complete but we’re intensely excited to see some real talent coming together.
For those of you who have not yet signed up for Indie Blu(e) updates, consider doing so to keep in the loop. Despite being a small publisher, we’ve been hard at work throughout the Pandemic; producing works we believe need to be read.
Our goal at Indie Blu(e) is to continually source those voices that need to be heard and give them a platform. We especially cherish the historically marginalized voices, and 2021 demonstrated this with two anthologies on mental health and invisible physical illness.
If you are an incredible writer and you seek a responsive, creative, and committed publisher for your work – consider submitting to Indie Blu(e) and becoming one of our 2022 stars. See submission details in full.
We look forward to connecting with you again in 2022 and bringing you more of the best work out there, for lovers of poetry, thinking, prose, and fresh voices.
Thank you to all who have supported Indie Blu(e) throughout this Pandemic. It is thanks to you we survived and we hope small companies like ourselves can continue to flourish with the backing of our community and the sustaining strength of our people.
