This is fun. One of my poems originally published in Room Magazine made it into their 40th anniversary anthology, alongside many other writers I admire a great deal. The magazine is raising money to cover printing costs by pre-selling the anthology (plus other perks) on IndiGoGo.
Here’s how they describe the project: “A collection of our favourite writing from Room magazine (formerly Room of One’s Own magazine), Canada’s oldest feminist literary journal. Room’s 40th Anniversary Anthology will explore the evolution of Canadian feminism over the past forty years, as told through fiction, poetry, and essays by some of Canada’s best writers (all who identify as women, genderqueer, trans, or non-binary).”
