Alex Dally MacFarlane

and I would put them back in poetry

And another post about writing, this time poetry, as Rose Lemberg has announced the cover for The Moment of Change, the first book of feminist speculative poetry ever, due to be launched at Wiscon (which I will be at).


Having recently seen the proofs, in which I have read some of the poems and the introduction – let me tell you, this is going to be amazing. I can’t wait to hold it and read it all under that beautiful cover. Here, in case you need the reminder, is the Table of Contents.

End of May. Mark your poetry diaries.
