Our beginings: We first met as a writers' group in 2018, and came up with the idea of writing stories on a common theme. That’s how the Water Anthology came up. Eventually we decided to create a journal of literature, poetry and art. Considering that writers find it very difficult to get traditionally published, we decided to create this 'no-fee' journal, with a vision to promote good writing.
