The Punks are Back in Town

Yet, taught by time, my heart has learned to glow for other’s good, and melt at other’s woe.

-Homer

Writerpunk Press is back and at it again. Taught by Time: Myth Goes Punk, our sixth charity anthology, is in the works!

We have taken the myths, legends and lore that readers love and turned them upside down and inside out. With a wide range of punk genres represented–steampunk, cyberpunk, dreadpunk, nanopunk, biopunk and atompunk–there’s sure to be something for everyone in this volume.

Profits are to be donated to PAWS Lynnwood, an animal shelter and wildlife rescue located in the Pacific Northwest.

Coming in late 2019, Taught by Time will be available on Amazon (print and ebook). Stay tuned!

The Punks are Back and Ready for Trouble

There hasn’t been a post on this website since March of this year. (2015, for those of you reading this in the far flung future.) We must apologize, but life has been very hectic for all the staff here at Writer Punk Press. However, there is good news! We wanted to start pulling the levers that open the steam vents that push gears back into motion. Our steam powered engines are revving up and a couple of different projects are scheduled to début in the near future.

  • A sequel to our well received anthology Sound and Fury: Shakespeare Goes Punk is coming on December 1 of this year. It is called Once More Unto the Breach: Shakespeare Goes Punk Volume II. The formats will be the same as the first volume and will have several new punkified versions of classic Shakespeare stories.  We will have more information as the launch date draws near.
  • Next year we will be delving into the worlds of Edgar Allen Poe. This master of horror and mystery is receiving the same punked-out treatment that his play writing forefather received. There is no set date for this anthology, but we do have a title. May I introduce the brilliant but somewhat dark Merely This and Nothing More: Poe Goes Punk.  More information on this anthology will be released as plans are finalized.

We have other projects that are in the works beyond these two anthologies. More information on future projects will be announced after the two current projects are released.

In the near future, Punk Writers will feature interviews, blog posts and other content from all of those involved with the Writer Punk anthologies. Later this week, we are honored to feature our very own Jeffrey Cook and his recent trip to PAWS.  This is a trip that has been in the making since Sound and Fury was released in March.  All the profits from that anthology have gone to help dogs in need through the PAWS program. Find out more information about PAWS by clicking here.

It has been an honor to see all the good things everyone has to say about our anthology. We look forward to producing more for all of you to read in the future. Keep coming back here for all the news, clues and information for our future products!
