R275 Power and Page Count: Publishing the Other Gender
Thursday, February 27, 2014
4:30 pm to 5:45 pm
Why is "difference" in publishing still a key word? What separates the genders on the page anyway? And where and how do women get the nerve? They keep hopping right back into the center of "Ye Old Testosterone Ring." More importantly: after getting kicked out of the circle so many times, what does a "Ring of Their Own look like"? Four female editors of print and/or online presses and journals discuss the literary landscape.

Women Write Resistance Anthology Reading
The Grotto Theater at Rendezvous
2322 2nd Ave.
Poets Resist Gender Violence Hyacinth Girl Press, 2013) AWP off-site anthology reading featuring dozens of poets and is hosted by Menacing Hedge. Friday February 28th, 2014 7 pm. The anthology views poetry as a transformative art. By deploying techniques to challenge narratives about violence against women and making alternatives to that violence visible, the over 100 women American poets in this anthology intervene in the ways gender violence is perceived in American cul...ture. The critical introduction frames the intellectual work behind the building of the anthology by describing how poets break silence, disrupt narratives, and use strategic anger to resist for change. Poetry of resistance distinguishes itself by a persuasive rhetoric that asks readers to act. The anthology collects poems by Ellen Bass, Lisa Lewis, Joy Castro, and many, many more. Please join us for poetry and more. A percentage of all book sales will be donated to a women's crisis center.
