Pen and Brush Literary Arts Curator Kate Angus went on a hunt for a list of women-run and women-founded presses. When she can't find one, she made her own. "It bothered me that this list—which seemed like such a fundamentally useful resource—didn’t exist yet so I decided to compile it myself. I didn’t want to exclude presses with some men on board, but I wanted to focus on places with a strong female editorial presence, either currently or historically....In that sense, I hope that this list will be a useful resource for women writers looking for places to submit their work just as much as for people who want to support presses and journals run by women."READ MORE
In this exciting episode of Vagina Chronicles Podcast, we are thrilled to share an incredible opportunity with our listeners who are (or are aspiring to be) professional female artists and writers. We interviewed the Executive Director, Janice Sands, of a 120 year-old nonprofit that intends to facilitate some pretty incredible opportunities for female artists “until it’s just about the art.”
I recently talked with Janice Sands, Executive Director of Pen and Brush, a NYC non-profit that supports the work of women artists. I spoke at length to her about the mission of Pen and Brush and its 120 year history. A new website promoting the organization, the work that it does, and the artists it supports has been recently launched. Sands spoke in detail on a variety of topics, particularly on the subject of its feminist identity.
