Support Women Writers

July 3, 2009

I just received this email from Tarpaulin Sky Press and thought it might be of interest to readers here:

TSky Press Fall 2009/Spring 2010 subscriptions are now available.

$60 for six books w/free shipping (vs. $103.94 from Amazon, or $107 from SPD)

Please visit our catalog at http://www.tarpaulinsky.com/Press/catalog.html to order online or pay by check. (THIS OFFER IS LIMITED TO 100 SUBSCRIBERS.)

All first books. All from women writers. Which excites us no end. Although we have always been committed to publishing both new writers and women writers, the 2009/10 subscription series really puts our money where our collective mouth is. Fall 2009 books include Ana Božicevic’s full-length poetry collection, Stars of the Night Commute; Traci O Connor’s book of short fictions, Recipes for Endangered Species; and Emily Toder’s poetry chapbook, Brushes With; Spring 2010 titles include Joanna Ruocco’s book of short fictions, Man’s Companions; Kim Gek Lin Short’s lyric novella, The Bugging Watch and Other Exhibits; and Shelly Taylor’s book of interlocking short fictions / prose poems, Black-Eyed Heifer.

If we want to address sexism in the literary world, we need to support those publishers that actively support women writers.
