My first collaboration: “ETHNICITY PRIDE” is finally out. I want to thank each one of the wonderful writers who joined this project: @ethernia (Indonesia), @abimopectore (Croatia), @lillimurato (Japan), @mouli1010 (India), @alanad (India), @shadowdream (US), @alexis123 (Hindustan). Please, check out their accounts and follow them. Also, some of the poems have been edited to fit in the collaboration (which required poems to be long about 5-10 lines): check out the link in the comments to read the original versions of the edited poems. Thank you! 💖
