Nasty Women Poets: Unapologetic Anthology of Subversive Verse

This timely collection of poems speaks not just to the current political climate and the man who is responsible for its title, but to the stereotypes and expectations women have faced dating back to Eve, and to the long history of women resisting those limitations. The nasty women poets included here talk back to the men who created those limitations …They sing, swear, swagger, and celebrate, and stake claim to life and art on their own terms.

Kate’s poem, Jezebel, appears on page 216

Beyond the Lyric Moment: Poetry Inspired by the Workshops of David St. John

“What this anthology reveals is both the extraordinary depth of talent of these poets as well as their remarkable and compelling stylistic variety. … To be able to see their poems consistently gather into shape and manifest such power and beauty has been what has given me back my belief in alchemy!”

David St. John
National Book Award Finalist (Study for the World’s Body: New and Collected Poems)
