Kore Press Presents: An AWP Panel We're Really Excited About
January 24, 2008
Panel Sponsored by Kore Press Friday, February 1, 12pm Gibson Suite, Hilton 2nd floor
Women's Presses, Activism, & Gender Inequities in the Literary World. Moderated by Lisa Bowden. Guerrilla girls look at gender inequity and the literary world: why are there far fewer women getting published than men when MFA programs and residencies are filled with women writers? Through the lens of Third Wave Feminism, we will consider what the perception of feminist publishing is and if the women's press is an effective activist project or a remarginalization of the already marginalized. Writers, editors, and activists comment on the historic need for and complexities inherent in the "affirmative action" of publishing women only.
