Years ago, before I finished my MFA, I joined forces with my friend Andréa Fekete to start an anthology of women's voices. We asked, "When have you been silenced? When has your voice rang its clearest?" Women from all over the globe responded. It took us several years to compile this collection of essays and poetry, and several more years to find a publisher who believed in us.
The final result, Feminine Rising: Voices of Power and Invisibility was released in April 2019. Today we found out it won Silver in Foreword Reviews Indie Awards 2019 Book of the Year in Women's Studies.
I'm honored and humbled to be able to help bring these wonderful women's voices to the world.
