The Antithesis Collective is a fledgling publishing group that yearns to put out kick-ass books woven by the imagination of local writers. We are here to give awesome, deserving and aspiring-to-be-published writers a fighting chance to share their characters, stories and ideas to people (like us) who welcome new characters and stories as if they are long lost college buddies who unexpectedly showed up on their doorsteps with a couple of six packs and chips.

The Pinky Promise

The Pinky Promise

A simple question – If you were to lose one of your fingers, which would it be? We’re not soothsayers or psychics but something tells us that you’d choose the diminutive pinky finger because it doesn’t seem to have that many duties & responsibilities. Think about it, you can go...

Under the Storm: 150 poets, 150 pieces of contemporary poetry

Jim Morrison said it best, “Listen, real poetry doesn’t say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through any one that suits you.” I’ll admit it on the outset – I can’t write poetry. Good thing the inability to write poetry (or at least poetry that doesn’t evoke peals...

James Boice talks about the good and the ghastly facts about writing
