The Soap Box


The Soap Box team works tirelessly with our contributors to bring you only the best that creative writing has to offer. We are a publication that is dedicated to sharing the work of talented writers while simultaneously creating a supportive writing community


1. A box or crate for packing soap.
2. Something that provides an opportunity for someone to share their views publicly.

Here at The Soap Box, we fall into the latter category. Founded in 2016, The Soap Box is a publication dedicated to publishing the work of talented, budding writers, and providing a platform to share their craft.

Our mission is to create a community for writers and artists to inspire and support the creative process, while ensuring that publishing remains accessible. We understand the many barriers that can prevent writers from getting published. We make it our mission to ensure that regardless of socio-economic status, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, or geographical location, The Soap Box remains an accessible medium for all writers within our community. Through our social media channels we feature works of our writers on a weekly basis, and guarantee that submitting to our anthologies remains free. At The Soap Box, we make it our mission to ensure that all voices, whether new or experienced, have a place to be heard. 

The Soap Box is released on a biannual basis, with creative works inspired by a preselected theme. Writers are invited to submit poetry, short stories, and free verse pieces during open calls. Afterwards, the written works selected for publication by our Editorial board are included in our print publication which will be available for purchase.
