Farrell Greenwald Brenner and I have a new conversation up on the Ms. Magazine blog about feminism, poetry, libraries, and much more. How do we recognize ourselves through reading? Can a library be a war zone, a place of physical danger, a site of contestation? Read more about what happens when two Gender & Women’s Studies majors get together to talk poetry.
Farrell and I are press mates at Headmistress Press, which has published both of our chapbooks. If you have a chapbook manuscript you’ve been thinking about sending out, you may be interested in entering Headmistress’s Charlotte Mew Prize chapbook contest. Ching-In Chen is judging this year (2018) and the deadline is July 4th.
If you want to read more of Farrell’s work, check out her chapbook Diatribe from the Library or an essay I really love that she published in Lilith, “When You’re that Intergenerational Jewish Lesbian Couple.” It might make you cry, but it’s beautifully written.
