Editorial Focus

From Whispers to Roars was founded on that idea that even the quietest of voices can roar: the story you’ve been hiding in a journal, afraid to share; the poems that have been stacking up on your bedside table; the weirdest thing you’ve ever written. They want to read them all. 

Since 2018, they’ve provided writers and artists with publishing opportunities, both online and in print. Lastly, they donate a portion of proceeds from every issue to a literary 501(c)(3) so that they can help continue to spread the love of the arts to new communities.
