When Stella Samuel heard complaints of new writers submitting and hearing no constantly, she discovered not a lack of skill in writing, but a lack of publishers who would take on the influx of writing. After years of publishing experience, she asked Charles Cooper from Elizabeth River Press to partner with her and help build a tribe of writers to uplift and support each other as they travel their personal and professional journeys into the world of publishing. We hope you enjoy these pieces from thirty-four authors, this year's Elizabeth River Writers, in the 2020 Annual, a compilation of life through words.
