Permission Granted is a printed poetry anthology dedicated to providing space for poets who live or have lived in areas with restricted freedom of speech or press. We are now expanding this to also include those for whom this does not apply, but who would like to submit poetry of witness and related poetry in solidarity.

The first issue of the Permission Granted Poetry Anthology will be released via Kindle Distributed Press and available internationally. All proceeds will go to PEN International.
