THE BEST THAT CREATIVE WRITING HAS TO OFFER
Founded in 2016, The Soap Box is a publication dedicated to providing an accessible platform that publishes the work of emerging and established writers.
Our mission is to create a community for writers and artists, where the creative process is supported and nurtured. 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 creative writing anthology is released on an annual 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. We also release three poetry chapbooks a year.
