Volume 1: Strong women

Are we born strong? Or are we given the opportunities to channel our inner force and it’s up to us if we focus on pain or on reshaping ourselves? The first volume of Ducked up stories talks about female protagonists who bizarrely find strength in sorrow.

Meet Nola Bel. Or not

Nola Bel might be a Guantanamera. A non-binary snake milker. An old woman with rainbow-colored hair. Or a duck. The only thing important about the writer is its storytelling quest to contribute to a #nolabel world.
