Bone Bouquet Journal

Bone Bouquet Journal Issue 9.1 available for pre-order!
We aim to highlight the important work of female poets, who are often underrepresented. Rather than personal politics, our criteria are excellence and vibrance. Rather than segregating the poetry of ‘women’s issues’ from ‘regular’ creative work, our goal is to provide an additional arena in which female poets can make their work more visible to readers, building their reputations as artists. Bone Bouquet will appear in a biannual print edition.

Bone Bouquet is raising funds for Raise Up Belladonna* by Belladonna* Collaborative | Donate Now

Whoa! I just unlocked this nifty feature where we can set up our own mini-fundraiser to feed into Belladonna*/Belladonna Books AKA Belladonna* Collaborative's big big fundraiser campaign. Click through! We set a modest supporter goal of bringing in $500 toward their large goal of $48k. Belladonna* has been our fiscal sponsor for many years, and at times a true lifeline. Give if you can! No dollar amount too small--a rally of small gifts shows the world how many people value the books and events this organization has produced over the last TWENTY YEARS.

Bone Bouquet wants you to donate to Raise Up Belladonna* by Belladonna* Collaborative

The sonically-hypnotic poems in this collection pry open the space between sounds and what they mean, and the violence of this prying is analogous to the ordinary violences that women live with the world over. “Orange you happy yet, a serious threat/a surfeit, a certain fate, a surer fret,” Blit...
