January Newsletter

We are continuing our mission to celebrate the unique and under-represented voices of women with an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. We need to meet our goal of $2000 to keep the campaign going after the January 28th deadline. Let’s make 2017 a great year for literature by and about women!
