Fortitude Needs You !!


Hello to everyone new to my blog and reading for the first time, and a big welcome back to everyone that’s been following it as its been progressing.


Fortitude was set up by me and Mitchell Alcock, back in late 2011 as a collective term for ourselves to publish under, we then progressed and found that our combined efforts made it so that our work was able to be released much faster, and that the self-publishing route is the most rewarding. We released a book called This Is What Saved Me, which as of yet has been in our eyes a success.

After a long discussion recently ( and around a year ago also) we decided that we would like to grow our group , help others achieve the dream we had already achieved and with the help of a group make sure that the whole groups work became that of legend.

The Idea

We decided that we would need members who either write poetry, write literature of any other kind, a photographer, someone with connections to publishers/agents or an artist.

We believe that if we get such a collection of people together that we would be able to achieve anything we set our minds on and that it wouldn’t matter if someone in the group needed either emotional or work help , there would be someone in the group to help them out.

We are striving to get ourselves a team of people that want to work together, still want 100% of any money made in the process, but want to feel part of something huge!

It doesn’t matter how old you are, what type of poetry/writing/pictures you do, we want to hear from you!

  4. Hi, thanks for leaving the comment on my blog ( It sounds very interesting what you are trying to set up and I would be happy to become a member. I am a proofreader and copy-editor by profession and writer in my personal time. Some more information would be great, particularly if you have any set goals or project deadlines coming up. Thanks.

    • Below are the questions i ask others about it , any more info you want can be given :)

      1. Do you have a twitter account ? 2. If not would you be willing to start an account of the same nature of myself and Mitchell ( info on how to do this available ) 3.If yes would you be interested in starting a second account 4. Would you be willing to advertise the group and the book to a few people on different places ( twitter,facebook .. etc…) 5. Do you have Whatsapp ( its an iphone and other smartphone app which means you can text and send images around the world for the original cost of £1.99 which doesnt ever need paying again just makes communicating soooo much easier ) 6. Any work that we do together would you be ok/Happy with the money being distributed on a per contribution level ? for example if there is 100 poems and you do 10 then 10% of the money ( if you don’t write and say you’re a photographer you would get money for pictures used ?? 7. Do you know anyone else that would be interested in joining ? 8. And finally do you know any artists ? 9 . When you finish your book would you be ok with putting your book under the same section of the site we used for selling our poetry book ( So that all our work is together )( obviously – the printing costs from the site 100% of the money would go to you) and if it is a set of pictures would you be willing to put it into a book and going this direction ? 10. if you want to join can you add on facebook your job as writer/ other job at ” Fortitude Poetry”

  19. I wish you every success with your writing and publishing. My main creative outlet is, a prayer site, but I’ve also self-published three novels I’m proud of. I think agents and big publishing houses are a complete waste of time (and they’re middlemen, taking a cut of your profits), so I encourage everyone here to write, sing, play, shoot, draw, paint and dance. Creating is the best way to live, all the rest is just details.
