The Occupy Movement (which started as Occupy Wall Street but has since gained momentum in several other locations in the U.S. and worldwide) has attracted a long list of authors, poets, and other people involved in the publishing world to its cause, championing the interests of the common folk in the face of increasing corporate greed. A number of notable figures have put their names on this list, including U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins, Pulitzer Prize winner Jennifer Egan, acclaimed playwright Eve Ensler, feminist psychologist Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and bestselling children's/YA novelist Lemony Snicket (nee Daniel Handler), among hundreds upon hundreds of others.
Could you pass along this link to the Occupy Writers site and offer exposure to the list on your blog? Proving that the pen is mightier than the sword...and even the billion-dollar paychecks that Corporate America gobbles up like candy.
