About

Anvil Tongue Books is the name of a blog & book publishing (ad)venture. 

The publishing home of Will Alexander & Heller Levinson, Giorgia Pavlidou, and D.C. Wojciech; Anvil Tongue authors & contributors exist at the fulcrum of worlds, in order to imagine new worlds & create the foundation which births these worlds into being, with the cardinal goal of furthering possibility, evoking the strength & sincerity of the human spirit amidst the continuum of a creative life. 

Both things belong to the same wild idea: creating and experiencing art is a necessity to the soul. We create art to approach and honor the unfathomable.
