Feminine Rising - Reading
Are there moments in your life when your femaleness is a source of power or hardship? When does your voice ring its clearest? When have you been silenced?
Feminine Rising: Voices of Power and Invisibility brings together international poets and essayists, both award-winning and emergent, to answer these questions with raw, honest meditations that speak to womena of all races, nationalities, and sexual orientations. It is an anthology of unforgettable stories both humorous and frightening, inspirational and sensual, employing traditional poetry and prose alongside exciting experimental forms. Feminine Rising celebrates women's diferences, while embracing the source of their sameness - the unique experience of womanhood.
This event will be the inaugural reading and official book release event of Feminine Rising: Voices of Power & Invisibility, (Cynren Press, April 30, 2019) which is a collection of poetry and essays from 70 award-winning women in a dozen countries. The reading will highlight authors Ann Pancake, Pauletta Hansel, Llewellyn McKernan and Co-curators Andrea Fekete & Lara Lillibridge.
