“CALYX holds a very special place in my heart. Some of my very first published words-two poems-were published in CALYX years ago. Feminist literature.amplifies our voices and extends our capabilities. At a time when mass trade publishing in the US is narrowing itself down to a race for the buck, I am increasingly comforted by the presence of feminist presses. Without them we would lose much more than feminist thought-we would lose color, and diversity, poetry, the outside chance, the underdog’s story, the heretical questions, the answers we need. As long as we crave honest reading, we’ll need our feminist presses.”
Barbara Kingsolver
