How important is feminist publishing? Ask our authors.
Dear FP family,
How do we at the Feminist Press know we’ve made an impact this year? We listen to our authors. They know better than anyone how much the world needs indie feminist publishing.
Camille Acker, author of Training School for Negro Girls:
“When I got a book deal from Feminist Press, I cried, not just to realize a dream but to know that people had seen me through my work. Other people believed in the vision I had begun to lose faith in… Somewhere out there, a creative person is waiting to be inspired by the stories only you can tell."
Kit Maude, translator of The Naked Woman by Armonía Somers:
“The thing about Somers’s writing is that it refuses to conform to convention or expectations. In fact, it generally sets out to subvert them in every way possible… When I finally sent it off to the Feminist Press and they came back saying that they thought it could stand to be a little weirder still, I knew we were on to something.”
Rocco Kayiatos, coeditor with Amos Mac of Original Plumbing: The Best of Ten Years of Trans Male Culture:
“Not only will [the book] allow OP to live on in the entirety of this one volume, but it’s also like a time capsule, so it stands for a decade of culture in a way that nothing else does… For queer people and queer history, it doesn't really get preserved.”
We’re thrilled to provide a platform for radical storytellers and feminist truthtellers who are shifting culture through creative resistance. And we’d love your support as we gear up for another year of revolutionary feminist publishing.
