Fly on the Wall is a social enterprise company and a not for profit publisher, based in Manchester. They publish political fiction, poetry and cross-genre anthologies on pressing issues, from exceptional authors around the globe.


In an era of ‘post-truth’, ‘fake news’ and misinformation, the right to protest, the right to a democratic society, feel more urgent than ever. For the ‘Demos Rising’ anthology , we will raise the voices of international writers and artists, across genres and oceans, to draw attention to worldwide injustices and celebrate the power of words to bring about change.

We will release the title in October 2022 and donate 5% of the profits to Amnesty International UK.

What genres are we looking for?

  • Poetry (up to 70 lines)
  • Short Stories (up to 5k words)
  • Flash Fiction (up to 1k words)
  • Artwork
  • Photography

What could you write about?

Create a piece on an issue which you are passionate about, whether that be human rights or animal rights. We seek nuance, perspective and authenticity. Whilst ‘Demos Rising’ is inherently political in its aims, and this naturally lends itself to powerful and fierce interpretations and approaches, we also welcome interpretations of uprising which brim with possibility, celebration and humour.

You could write about democracy – what it means to you, what breeds without it, or you could write about a specific human rights emergency. We want the anthology to cover historical and modern day injustices and breakthroughs.

What has the power of protest brought about so far?

Newspapers are a great place to gain inspiration, as is the Amnesty International Website.
