Memories Flow in Our Veins By CALYX Press


Memories Flow in Our Veins: Forty Years of Women’s Writing from CALYX is an elegant literary history of feminist nonprofit CALYX Press, revealed through a collection of poetry and prose from their rich archive of women’s literature. Featuring all-new introductory content by the CALYX Editorial Collective and vibrant contributions by thirty of their most renowned authors, this anthology explores the evolving realities and aspirations of women across cultures, generations, and perspectives. We follow young girls as they discover their womanhood, behold wives and mothers pushing beyond the boxes society has put them in, and witness as aging women reckon with the dynamic effects of time. This anthology pays tribute to CALYX Press, their contributions to literature, and their commitment to the future of women writers.
