JOIN US

Send us your name and the name of your publication, as above.

NOTE: Given the large volume of submissions, there will be some delay before your name appears in the list. Volunteers are entering each and every name by hand.

Once you’ve done that, visit your local occupation and write about it—a paragraph, a poem, a comic, a story, a vignette, anything goes—and send it our way. We’re looking for original writing by signatories to the list. What kind of writing is up to you, but we’re especially interested in hearing accounts, in any form, of your experiences at Occupy camps and protests around the world.
