We are influenced by the writers of the feminist avant-garde, who in unabashed and uncompromising ways commingle their visions and politics to create risky, exciting works. Works that investigate and interrogate gender, race, sexuality and class at all levels but particularly at the level of language and language structures. We publish works that that aren’t easily categorized or commodified and that resist prescriptive modes.
Since we are a collaborative, almost 100% volunteer-powered, and by nature horizontally structured, we try to remain very conscious of our lived realities as individuals and as a community. Discussions and negotiations of self-care and labor are freely mixed with those of politics and aesthetics. We also support each others’ imaginations and the burgeoning imagination of the feminist avant-garde by creating a variety of spaces (from bookstore readings to intimate apartment salons) to discuss, read and perform feminist avant-garde works.
