I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a creative cohort!
First and foremost, my creative cohort is what helped me survive my graduate program!! Second, the covenant (which is what we refer ourselves as and yes, all puns intended) was not just a safe place to discuss each others creative en devours, but I was fortunate enough to be in the company of intelligent, strong and compassionate women who were okay with talking about the difficult stuff like race, gender, class, etc. In a lot of ways these women have helped me discover what Feminism is for me.
That being said, the covenant is getting together and art is about to happen. Hard.
But as a teaser, its going to be a lot of print, and me and B are trying to be a two woman publishing house: Birch Books ©
Yeah, watch out for us.
