Pen and Brush Presents…Bozicevic, Lee, and Aenlle-Rocha
Pen and Brush Presents… is a reading series founded by Kate Angus and hosted by Pen and Brush. The series supports the work small press editors do in identifying excellent writing, as well as supporting the writing itself, by featuring exciting new work by established and emerging authors. Each month, “Pen and Brush Presents…” will feature readings by three writers, each one selected by editors at a press, journal, or organization with a strong female editorial presence.
Join us for our November reading, featuring the following writers and presses:
Ana Božičević, representing Monk Books and founding editor Bianca Stone. Monk Books is a poetry press founded in October 2010 with a mission to make books as deliberate and artful as the texts within. We publish the best of contemporary and out-of-print poetry in limited-edition chapbooks.
Jean Lee, representing Canthius and journal's co-founder Claire Farley. Canthius is a Canadian literary journal publishing poetry and prose by women and genderqueer writers. As an intersectional feminist project, Canthius is committed to ensuring that women of colour are represented both as contributors to the magazine and in the editorial process. Each issue of Canthius also features new work from a visual artist in any effort to bring these art practices together through feminist community-building. You can find subscription and submission information, as well as select work from previous issues and articles about literature and feminism, at www.canthius.com.
Celine Aenlle-Rocha, representing Pen and Brush. For over 122 years, Pen and Brush has been dedicated to promoting the work of women in both the literary and visual arts. Pen and Brush provides a platform to showcase the work of emerging and mid-career female artists and writers to a broader audience with the ultimate goal of effecting real change within the marketplace.
