The WordParty is an open collective of poets and friends in San Francisco. We host a monthly poetry & jazz series where poets are welcome to read with the spontaneous accompaniment of the Nova Jazz band. Our mission is to provide a space where all the misfits of poetry and jazz — any style or genre — can come together to express themselves — at the WordParty there is always laughter, inspiration, and community.
Feather Press is an independent, literary press dedicated to printing poetry and prose by female writers. We believe female authors should be amplified and encouraged to soar far and wide. We believe in the concept of creative abundance, and that every woman has an exciting and rich history, a story, and a vast lineage to draw from. We embrace cultural and racial diversity and wholeheartedly support a community of established and emerging voices. Our aim is to publish female authors through skillfully crafted and designed books.
