Just poppin’ in to say that Dinah Press only has a few days left in its fundraising drive. We’ve received a very generous non-Pay Pal donation, plus some preorders, so we’re actually a lot closer to our goal than the ChipIn meter indicates. Anything you can give will help!
Here are descriptions of our first two projects:
A poetry collection in progress
Cynthia Oka is honoured to collaborate with Dinah Press on her first book, a collection of poems searching to recover terrains of joy, possibility and power inside the complicated/complicit spaces of late imperialist/colonial/hetero-patriarchal capitalism.
Other Life Forms: A Novel
Other Life Forms, Julia Glassman’s debut novel, tells the story of Sylvie Frankel, a young sculptor struggling to rebuild her life after the death of her college sweetheart. Meditating on the complexities of creation, identity, strength, and the self, the novel explores what it means to be an artist and a woman when neither mode of being seems sustainable.
Once the books start coming together, I’ll pester you all with cover artwork, blurbs, and details on how you can host a house party. Hurray! Hurray for literature!

Thanks for the reminder. Book ordered.
