Life-writing that emerges from Palestine and the diaspora is marked by its emphasis on the collective. Following the proliferation of single-author, book-length works during the previous quarter-century, this chapter turns to focus on contemporary English-language anthologies, which gather together connected yet distinct voices through short-form life writing. This sense of communality, alongside a desire to respond to contemporary crises, is central to these anthologies of Palestinian writing. Often to a greater extent than single-author texts, anthologies actively draw attention to the fact that while the predicaments faced by Palestinians are individually experienced, they are also widespread and shared. Such texts, individually meaningful but also conversant with wider concerns and messages of solidarity, this chapter argues, are ideal components of anthologies that position themselves as future-orientated and express a desire for change at the outset.
