Dear Poets and Other Followers,
I’ve decided to put the Feminist Poetry Festival on hiatus for 2015. I did not make this decision lightly. However, with everything I’ve had on my plate over the past two years, I’m feeling a little burned out in terms of organization and leadership. I need to take some time to relax and refocus.
I am looking into bringing a small ITWOW event to Austin later this year, so stay tuned!
Plus, there’s a new feminist publishing company coming to down. Bad Weather will launch later this year, and they’re looking to produce a literary festival as well. Part of my motivation for putting the Feminist Poetry Festival on hiatus was to have space to collaborate with Bad Weather. Rather than run two similar festivals, we’re looking to combine our talents for one great event.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
